Lochan Nam Breac

RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

Grid Reference: 001 477

Elevation: 167m

Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum).


Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) and follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 002 470. Head North for a distance of 500m to reach the loch. Nam Breac is a pleasant little lochan to the west of Skyline, useful for restoring confidence if the skyline trout are proving difficult. Sheltered to the east by forestry, but open to the north and west, Nam Breac is a shallow loch with comfortable wading from the southern and eastern banks. The west bank is very soft and should be avoided. Don’t expect anything for the glass case but a good head of small but spirited fish should keep the angler entertained.

        Loch Na Cloiche

        RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

        Grid Reference: 975 474

        Elevation: 166m

        Bag Limit: All fish to be taken and accurate lengths recorded.


        Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) and follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 974 459. Head North over wet ground for a distance of 1.2km to reach the boat in the SW corner of the loch which is free to use for all members. Club members have reduced the numbers of fish in this loch which has significantly improved the fishing and the habitat. Cloiche is a delightful loch and has a good head of bright, spirited, free rising fish in the 10-12oz bracket. Bigger fish of 1lb have been caught close to the bank, no doubt feeding on the numerous sticklebacks in the loch. Boat and bank both yield good catches, though care is needed when wading over rocky patches on the east side. All fish caught must be removed and lengths from the tip of nose to the fork in the tail accurately recorded and a catch return completed.

          Gyrodactylus Salaris Declaration

          Download printable form here.

            Please read and complete this Gyrodactylus Salaris Declaration form carefully.

            Gyrodactylus Salaris (GS) is an extremely dangerous parasite responsible for the destruction of salmon stocks in over 20 rivers in Norway. It is also present in Russia, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, Spain and Portugal. It is vital that this GS declaration has been completed and signed by anglers and ensures the appropriate precautions are taken to prevent the spread of Gyrodactylus Salaris.

            It is the policy of Forsinard Flyfishers’ Club that no fishing is to take place until a GS declaration has been signed.

            I declare that my fishing tackle HAS NOT been outside the United Kingdom in the 7 days prior to the date of my arrival.



            OR

            • Drying to a minimum of 20 degrees Celsius for 48 hours.
            • Heating to above 60 degrees Celsius for 1 hour.
            • Deep freezing for 24 hours.
            • Immersion in a solution of one of the following chemicals to the concentration indicated for a minimum of 10 minutes: Virkon 1% or Wescdyne 1% or Sodium Chloride (common salt) 3% or Sodium Hydroxide 0.2%

            I SHALL WEAR A BUOYANCY AID WHILE BOAT FISHING

            I am aware of the Forsinard Flyfishers’ Clubs policy that all persons using a Club boat MUST wear a buoy-ancy aid.
            I therefore declare that on any occasions that I shall use a Forsinard Flyfishers’ Club boat I shall wear a buoyancy aid.
            I will wear my own buoyancy aid and I agree that it is fully functioning, not damaged and correctly fits me.

            I acknowledge my acceptance of the appropriate Gyrodactylus Salaris Declaration and the Wearing of a Buoyancy Aid
            Declaration by signing below.





            Loch Grassie

            Fishing season 1st April to 5th October.

            Grid Reference: 030 468

            Elevation: 155m

            Bag Limit: Catch and Release


            Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading to and beyond Altnabreac. 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Continue along track past Loch Caise for 1/2 mile where a sign for Grassie will be found pointing through a forestry ride. A short 5 minute walk through this very wet and boggy ride will bring anglers to the southerly shore – waders are recommended to ensure dry feet! Anglers will encounter fewer fish in the loch’s considerable amount of shallow water in the westerly bay which reaches towards loch Caise, the deeper water extending along the opposite shore will produce most success. A fantastic little loch to visit and combine with either of the nearby lochs for added variation to the day. Grassie holds a smaller head of fish than neighbouring Garbh or Caise but trumps them both on size and quality with fish of over a pound often encountered.

Walk SE for a distance of approximately 1.8km to reach the loch. This loch has been seldom visited in recent times so little is known about the quality of fishing. Historical records have shown fish of over 2lbs being caught in the past, well worth a visit for the determined, adventurous angler.

                  Grid Reference: 857 612

                  Elevation: 153m

                  Bag Limit: 6 Fish limit (9″ inch minimum)


                  Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road about 600 meters west of Melvich at grid reference 868651. A gate code must be obtained to access the track that you follow south for about 4 or 5km. This is a rough track so a 4×4 will be necessary to drive to the end and park at 859626. Walk in a southerly direction, past Loch Baligill, keeping to the high ground for a distance of 1.2km.

                  Loch Achridigill is a very productive loch for all fishing levels. A boat which will be found on the NW shore is available if booked in advance, otherwise a rocky shoreline requires careful wading but the rocks hold many trout very close in from 6oz to 10oz with the odd larger fish further out. The loch level used to be several feet higher and the east end is shallow and studded with rocks so be very careful when boat fishing. Bags of 50+ may be caught and fish may be kept for the pot.

                    Elevation: 153m

                    Bag Limit: Catch and Release


                    Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road about 600 meters west of Melvich at grid reference 868651. A gate code must be obtained to access the track that you follow south for about 4 or 5km. This is a rough track so a 4×4 will be necessary to drive to the end and park at 859626. Walk south and west over the hill  a distance of approximately 800m, and the view opens up to reveal lochs Baligill and Ackridigill to the south with the Orkney Islands also visible over the North Sea on a clear day.

                    Loch Baligill is one of the most challenging of club waters with some steep banks   After it was dammed for the local water supply in the late 1970s, there were a few good years of large trout taken from 2lbs to 3.5lbs with one exceptional fish landed in the 1980s of over 8lbs (believed to be the record trout for club waters). However, it is rare to find any other entries of trout over 3lbs in the old game books and in recent years (since the 1990s) very little if any fish have been caught here, although some have been seen on warm, calm evenings. Nothing is known about the best approach to fish this loch but it is certainly one for the hardy specimen hunter and worth a cast when tied in with a trip to the very productive loch Ackridigill. Expect more blanks than productive days – catch-and-release only.

                      Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road in Strathy at Grid reference 841650 and drive south on the east side of the river Strathy for a distance of 7km to park at 828583. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the final part of the bumpy track. Head east up the hill for an energetic 25-30 minutes, a distance of approximately 1.5km, to reach the loch. Visiting anglers should carry the relevant OS map and a compass.

                      Caol has a small head of fish and is undoubtedly an expert’s water.  In recent years the loch has suffered from a number of unlicensed fishermen over-exploiting the loch. Please be vigilant and challenge anyone on the ground to produce the FFFC credentials! No wading is needed here as the banks drop away to several feet in depth and fish often cruise the margins so stay back from the banks and fish carefully. It is worth targeting any rising fish that occasionally appear in flat calms.

                      Expect more blank than productive days but Caol has a reputation of producing fish of outstanding quality up to and over 3lbs in weight. One for the determined, experienced angler.

Follow the fence line/forest ride for a 300m walk to reach the loch. The very southern part of the loch is shallow and wading is safe and advantageous though the angler is better off staying on the bank on the east and west banks. The east bank has proved to be productive in the past though fish have been caught all over the loch. Due to the nature of this loch it is unlikely to hold a large head of fish, expect fish in the region 10oz-1lb though don’t be surprised by something significantly larger!

Park in small trackside area opposite sleeper built footbridge. A short 3-4 minute walk north over tussocks and uneven ground will bring anglers to the loch’s southerly shore, boat users should follow the loch a couple of hundred yards around the east shore to find the boat mooring. Loch Garbh, with its large head of spirited, free rising fish in the 9″-12″ region is the perfect place to introduce anyone to fly fishing. Boat and bank both yield good catches, though care is needed when wading over rocky patches on west side.

Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading to and beyond Altnabreac. 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Both bank and boat fishing is available on this little gem of a loch, and with loch side parking in the SW corner, this is one of the most delightful pieces of water an angler could visit. Fat, brightly marked, little fish rise readily and give a good account of themselves in the process. With the exception of the less productive west bank, fish are caught all around the loch in good numbers, larger concentrations are often encountered in both the north and south ends.

Follow what was a forest ride for a distance of 800m to reach the stile over the deer fence. The loch lies a further 400m to the north.  The narrow, southern part of the loch is shallow and the least productive, otherwise the angler can cast with confidence in any part of the loch. Caol is one of the few lochs where fishing from a boat is a significant advantage. There is a good head of bright, hard fighting fish with the average size in the region of 10oz with fish up to 2lb not being uncommon.

                                    Loch Skyline

                                    RSPB Lochs. Fishing season 1st April to 5th October. Three ‘clear rest days’ between angling days.

                                    Elevation: 196m

                                    Bag Limit: Catch and Release


                                    Leave the A897 at Grid reference 903485 (Forsinain) follow the forestry track, a 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track, to park at 011475. The loch is a short 150m walk in a NE direction. There is not a large head of fish in Skyline and anglers can expect more blank than productive days though fish caught are of outstanding quality up to 2lb in weight with the occasional larger specimen. Fish can be caught all over the loch but start fishing well back as fish can lie tight to the bank. Please note that the bank can be rather ‘soggy’ which some anglers could find difficult and may prefer to use the boat available.

                                        Exclusion zone applies in SE half until mid August.
                                        Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading towards Altnabreac. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Using a map for reference, park in the ample space found 50m after crossing the burn which flows solely from Slethill. Following the lightly trodden path NE on an easy 5-10 minute walk over flat ground will bring anglers to the loch’s outflow in the SW corner where the boat may be launched from. A highly regarded loch yielding beautiful, hard fighting fish averaging 3/4lb – 1lb. Wading essential when bank fishing as shallow water extends well beyond casting distance in much of the very productive south and west banks. Large weed beds in the loch’s centre provide a rich habitat for the trout from June – September, concentrating all around the weed’s perimeter can be fantastic sport while trying to keep hooked fish from finding the sanctuary of cover.

                                            Approach from Forsinain via forestry track leading towards Altnabreac. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. The parking in an area overlooking the loch leaves a simple 100m walk down to the water’s edge, making this one of the easiest lochs for anglers to visit. In recent years Leir has developed into a productive early and late season loch, unfortunately, the months in between have seen the water plagued with algae during which time fishing efforts have been better concentrated elsewhere. Best bank fishing is found along the south side into SE corner where wading is easy. Although large numbers of smaller fish can be caught in the NW corner where the loch narrows, the wading here, over big boulders, is as difficult as an angler will find anywhere – boat users should take extra care to avoid the number of large rocks found in this area. Average fish size has improved to 12oz with fish of 1lb not uncommon now. Leir fish are still, without question, some of the hardest fighting trout that can be encountered!

The loch lies a distant 3.2km in a NE direction. It is fair to say that Saird and its nearby neighbour Sainn are for the more adventurous angler who enjoys a good walk in the heart of the stunning scenery of the flow country combined with some fishing. Don’t expect anything for the glass case but Saird has a good head of spirited free rising fish. Relevant OS map and a compass are a must for the visiting angler.

Caol is an energetic 2.2km walk. Pass through the double gate, head uphill and along argo track ensuring forestry is to the left of the track. Pass through the gate and follow the route of the pylons to pass Loch Akran on your right, walk a further 400m then head north a further 250m to reach the loch. Caol is historically known as ‘Champagne’ nobody is sure of the reason why, perhaps successful anglers celebrated in style! Little is known about the fishing in this loch though historical records show fish of 2lb plus being caught in the past. This loch has been rarely fished, one for the determined angler who enjoys a challenge. Let us know!
