I am pleased to report that the membership continues to increase and now exceeds 170, as chair I extend a warm welcome to those who have joined this season. I also welcome the visitors who enjoy visiting our wonderful island and join us for a day out by loch or stream. Visitor Day permits and boat hire are both available from Inside Out, the outdoor clothing shop, in Portree.

 

 

This season has been very successful on our lochs, whether that is for rainbow trout in Loch Leathan ( large Storr) , or wild brown trout in Loch Fada ( small Storr) and the many hill lochs. Brown trout to 3lbs have been caught and rainbows of the 2lb mark provide great sport. The limit is two fish per day, excluding Loch Leathan where all browns should be returned. Voluntary catch and release is of course ever more popular and appreciated by the club's management team.

 

 

June normally sees the start of the migratory salmon and sea trout runs on all club rivers. The first salmon was caught on the 19th June last year

Look out for the newly re established monthly reports in the Trout and Salmon magazine.
