Salmon Fishing - River Ullapool Scotland

O. S. Map 19, 20

The Ullapool is the name given to the river which flows from Loch Achall to the sea in Loch Broom, the last four miles in a journey which began high in the mountains of the Inverlael Forest as the river Douchary, later to become the river Rhiddorroch which flows into the eastern end of Loch Achall.

There are three beats on the River Ullapool, of which the middle beat is generally regarded as the best. Loch Achall was once noted for its sea trout but, in common with many west coast rivers, stocks of sea trout have declined dramatically in recent years. The Ullapool River can be expected to produce around 70 salmon in a season. Salmon and sea trout fishing is available on the south bank, on the lower beat from Moss Bridge down to the sea. Permits at 6 per day from Lochbroom Hardware, Ullapool, Tel: 01854 612356. See also details of the fishing on Rhidorroch Estate at Scotland Holiday Cottages

Salmon and sea trout fishing may also be available on the River Broom and River Lael, which flow into the head of Loch Broom. Inverlael Estate lets two rods on 1.5 miles of one bank of the River Broom, with ten pools, the lower of which is tidal. The River Broom is very much a spate river, requiring rain to give of its best. Inverlael Estate also offers fishing on the River Lael. Contact Inverlael Farmhouse, tel: 01854 655262

Salmon and sea trout fishing is available also on the River Kannaird, six miles north of Ullapool, with 11 pools available. The catchment is limited and the river relies very much on rain to bring fish into the river. Enquiries should be directed to Langwell Estate, tel: 01854 666321

The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. 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 always been.

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.
