Argyll Fishing

Arygll is without doubt one of Scotland's most beautiful and historic counties, from its craggy peaks to lush wooded valleys and a shoreline covering some 1800 miles.

With an abundance of historic castles, country gardens, distilleries, as well as outdoor pursuits such as walking, cycling, and of course fishing, there is plenty to see and do.

Argyll offers the angler all forms of fishing in a wide variety of different settings, from sea fishing for tope, pollack, skate and mackerel; fly fishing for salmon and trout; highland lochs for brown trout; to fishing for rainbow trout in stocked fisheries.

There is excellent fishing throughout Argyll to suit all abilities and at an affordable price.

Fishing currently available through this site includes the prime beats of the River Awe and River Orchy, the River Ruel, and the River Laggan on Islay.


The famous Kilchurn Castle Loch Awe

The River Awe flows into Loch Etive near Taynuilt and is considered, along with sister river, the River Orchy, the jewel of Argyll when it comes to salmon fishing.

Loch Awe, the longest freshwater loch in Scotland at 26 miles long and 1 mile wide in places, is renowned for its ferox trout and brown trout fishing, and has some splendid coarse fishing for pike and perch. Fishing permits for Loch Awe can be purchased locally in many shops.

In the South of Argyll, fishing is available on the River Ruel, a classic West coast spate river. This river, which flows into the Loch Riddon and the Kyles of Bute, has runs of salmon and sea trout, and offers some of the most picturesque fishing in Scotland within the glorious Glendaruel.
