Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing on Harris Scotland
O. S. Maps 13, 14
Harris has some
superb salmon and sea trout fishing, the best of it let on a weekly
basis with lodge accommodation on the
Amhuinnsuidhe, Obbe and Borve Lodge estates. Fishing
may occasionally be available to the casual visitor on these estates
or at Laxadale or Finsbay.
Located at the village of Urgha, to the east of Tarbert, the two
Laxadale Lochs offer fishing for a maximum of eight rods. There are
three boats and two fishing huts, with disabled access. The five year
average catch is around twenty salmon. Fish enter the lochs after rain.
Salmon up to fifteen pounds and sea trout to four pounds can be expected
along with numerous brown trout. The season runs from April 1st
to October 15th, with daily and weekly fishing lets available
through the head gillie

Finsbay, Flodabay and Stockinish
Located in south east Harris, the Finsbay fishing permit allows fishing
in all lochs on the system, including Flodabay and Stockinish. The
fishings comprise about 50 lochs on Finsbay, 35 on Flodabay and 17 on
Stockinish with two separate tributaries to the sea. Some of the lochs
are near the road, most can be reached within thirty minutes, and the
most distant are within an hour's walk. There is a system of daily
rotation. Brown trout fishing is available in March and April at a cost
of £30 per week, with salmon and sea trout from May onwards.
The combined 5 year average catch for the "100 Lochs" comprising Finsbay,
Flodabay and Stockinish is 5 salmon, 52 sea trout and 167 brown trout.
Accommodation is available for a total of 18.

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.
