Outdoor Activities - Fishing
Lochaber holds a wealth of varied angling opportunities and without expection each fishing trip in the Scottish Highlands will take place against a backdrop of spectacular scenery.
The local rivers are popular for fly fishing and hold stocks of salmon and sea trout. Loch fishing takes place in hill and forestry lochs for brown trout, char, and pike. Sea angling charters can be arranged and large skate, mackeral and conger eel are often caught.
The Rod and Gun Shop on Fort William High Street is the best place for advice on local fishing and permits.
Glencoe Lochan provides easily accessible fishing for Rainbow Trout and the penisula at The Isles of Glencoe Hotel and Leisure Centre is very popular with anglers. Permits must be obtained and these are available at the local Post Office.
Fishing Tackle is available at the Ballachulish Hardware store.
