Good news on salmon and sea trout
Catch returns received to date show encouraging numbers of migratory fish, with members netting over 60 salmon and 190 sea trout. Better still, the great majority of these were returned, which augurs well for our future fishing.
However, fewer than half of members have sent in their catch return so far. If you are one of those who haven’t - better late than never, send it in now.
Final catch statistics will be published later.
Storr Lochs disappoint
Members reported disappointing returns from Storr Lochs. Fish were hard to come by and there was a distinct shortage of larger specimens. Following the survey carried out this year, the Committee sought further expert advice, but the reasons for the decline remain elusive.
As an interim measure, we plan to resume stocking at the beginning of next season. Details are yet to be finalised and will be announced later.
There can be few more dramatic places in the world in which to fish than amongst the
mountains and moorlands of Scotland’s ‘Misty Isle,’ the Island of Skye.
The Portree Angling Association offers access to some of the most productive rivers and
lochs in Skye,mostly to the north of Portree and including the famous Storr Lochs, guarded in the west by the long ridge of Trotternish and the much-photographed, magical, craggy,pinnacle of
The Old Man of Storr (535m).
