Fishing in Lochaber
The Lochaber area has a wide variety of fishing in freshwater lochs, rivers and sea lochs. In the freshwater lochs like the Glencoe Lochan and Torlundy Farm you can fish for brown trout with the appropriate permit. The season for brown trout runs from 15th March to 5th October. Salmon fishing season runs from April and to October. There is no close season on the lochs that open to the sea and there is also no season on pike or rainbow trout.
The best trout fishing is always in the late spring and early summer and then again later towards the close of the season and the rivers fish much better after a spate. There are a few places where there is no permit required such as Loch Lochy and the sea lochs. There are many opportunities for excellent sea fishing especially from one of the charter boats available.
Fishing permits and some equipment can be purchased from The Hardware Shop in Ballachulish and Eric Wallace Newsagents in Fort William.
