Welcome to the update page of Portree Angling Association.
The Club was formed in 1955 and has a long association with protecting and developing the angling opportunities on the Island for members and visitors alike.
Our fishings cover over 20 lochs, 8 rivers and streams. Most are leased although we own the fishing rights to the Storr Lochs, our premiere waters in the shadow of the World famous Old Man of Storr.
Game fish in our waters range from Salmon, sea trout, brown and rainbow trout and arctic char. In recent years even sea bass have been taken on the fly in estuarial waters.
If you are intending visiting the Island over the summer period then why not join us by purchasing a visitor permit to fish in some of the most dramatic scenery in the United Kingdom.
The fishing is available at a modest cost and the species that you can expect to encounter range from brown and rainbow trout right through to the king of fish, the Atlantic Salmon.
As July progresses you can expect both salmon and sea trout in any of our spate rivers . Salmon average 5lbs, with specimen fish of 22 and 24lbs caught last year. Sea trout average around a pound but again specimen fish of three to four pounds can be the exception.
Trout fishing our hill lochs is a great way to spend a day, normally in total solitude.
The Storr Lochs, both Leathan and Fada have been fishing well since the season opened in March with excellent sport .
June recorded brown trout of 3 and another estimated at 4lbs ( all returned) and many rainbow trout in the 2/3lb category.
So, why not join us, and have a great day out.
All loch fishing is fly only.
All salmon must be returned unharmed.
Any brown trout caught in Loch Leathan must also be returned to assist their recovery.
The bag limit for rainbow trout is two fish.
Anglers can continue to fish after reaching their bag limit on a catch and release basis where barb less hooks are recommended.
Enjoy your fishing.
