Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing on the Kyle of Sutherland
O. S. Map 21
The Kyle of Sutherland is a large tidal area extending some twenty
five miles from the confluence of the rivers Oykel and Cassley
eastwards to the Dornoch Firth. Both salmon and sea trout are
caught, with the Kyle of Sutherland Angling Club taking in the
region of 400 salmon and 200 sea trout per season.
summer, with low river levels on the rivers Carron, Shin, Oykel and
Cassley, can hold salmon and sea trout in the Kyle and give some good
fishing, both from boat and from the shore. The angling club produces a
useful booklet to help visiting anglers get the best out of the fishing.
A day permit from the angling club to fish from the shore will cost £8 a
day for sea trout fishing and £33 for salmon.
