Sea Trout Fishing on River Ailort and Loch Eilt
O. S. Map 40
The River Ailort is a small river, only two and a half miles long,
draining Loch Eilt and entering the sea in Loch Ailort. At one time,
Loch Eilt was reputed to be one of the top Scottish sea trout lochs,
producing in the region of 1000 sea trout in a season.
sea trout fishing on this lovely loch and river system has, in line
with other sea trout fisheries in the north west of Scotland,
declined to such an extent that it is hardly worth fishing for
migratory fish, although brown trout might still be caught.
