Salmon Fishing - River Kirkaig

The River Kirkaig lies in the unspoilt North West of Sutherland with a backdrop of the mountains of Suilven Canisp and Ben More Assynt. The river lies in a wonderfully unspoilt gorge with a series of rocky pools and runs. 

The Falls of Kirkaig, two miles upstream from the mouth is an impressive barrier to the further upward migration of salmon and sea trout, and the river below this is divided into three beats, each of two rods, which are fished on a daily rotation. Each beat has a variety of excellent holding pools, some of which are rocky and only accessible to the most agile. 

The Kirkaig is very much a spate river and restricted to fly only with the season running from 11th February – 15th October, the main fishing months being July – October.
