Fishing at Poolewe, Scotland
Poolewe lies at the mouth of the River Ewe on the
shores of Loch Ewe and is an excellent centre for the trout
fisherman. The once great sea trout fishing on the River Ewe and
Loch Maree is not what it was but the trout fishing in the many hills
lochs of the area are well worth a visit, providing great sport in
the wild hills of Wester Ross.

Please note that these maps may date back several decades.
Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and
lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have
In addition to the information provided
here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or
walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass
and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the
O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale
1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the
relevant O.S. Map number.
