Caol North

Fishing Season 1st April to 30th June.

Grid Reference: 843 581

Elevation: 155m

Bag Limit: Catch and Release


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.

    Loch a Mhuilinn

    Fishing Season 1st April to 30th June.

    Grid Reference: 873 562

    Elevation: 131m

    Bag Limit: Catch and Release


    Leave A897 Helmsdale/Melvich road at Grid reference 892555, follow the minor road north to park at 889561 and walk west up the hill for a strenuous 20 minutes, a distance of 1.4km. Very little is known about the fishing on Mhuilinn, it is deep enough and fertile enough to hold fish but there is no information to date. Perhaps worth a cast for the adventurous angler.

      Loch nam Bo Uidhre

      Fishing Season 1st April to 30th June.

      Grid Reference: 845 571

      Elevation: 154m

      Bag Limit: Catch and Release


      Leave the A836 Thurso/Bettyhill road in Strathy at Grid reference 841650 and drive south, staying on the east side of the river. A 4×4 or vehicle with high clearance is required to negotiate the bumpy track. Either park at around 7km and walk uphill out past the southern end of Loch Caol for 50 minutes or stay on the track for a distance of 9km to park at 827565. Follow the fence line uphill in an ENE direction for a strenuous 700m, at the top of the hill continue travelling ENE to reach the loch after a further 1km walk. Visiting anglers should carry the relevant OS map and a compass.

      Little is known about the fishing in Bo Uidhre. It is one for the adventurous angler as it does not hold a large head of fish. The banks have a shallow gradient consisting of large rocks so wading is extremely treacherous and what fish are there are likely to be further out. No boat is available. Combine with other lochs in the area for an adventurous day out.
