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 has got off to an early start thanks largely to the long spell of bright and sunny weather that we have been enjoying since the start of April. All the hill lochs will be warming up nicely and prospects here are excellent. The Storr Lochs have already been fishing well with one local angler commenting that he has had his best start to the season in many years with 26 takable trout already to his rod . Reports are also coming in of shoals of sea trout assembling in estuarial waters. Tight Lines

 

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.
