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.

 

The season will fully open on all fisheries from the 15th March 2019.

As there is a new arrival of stocked fish due into Loch Leathan (the larger Storr) on the 12th anglers are asked to avoid fishing within the confines to and north of the clearly marked white poles until after the 1st April.

This will allow the new arrivals to distribute themselves undisturbed.

 

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.

 

Tight Lines.
