Some of the finest wild brown trout, sea trout and salmon fishing around is on the doorstep. The burns and lochs are not stocked and the lack of fish farms in the western watershed of the islands has kept the gene pool pure.
With 15% of the UK freshwater surface area on the islands there is plenty of choice for the keen fly fisherman, from sandy machair lochs to peaty hill lochs a good hour’s walk into the hills.
Salmon and sea trout up to 10lbs are caught regularly and hard fighting brown trout are a particular attraction in the machair lochs.
Fishing permits for all fishing on the Estate are available from the Stòras Uibhist office. Further information on where and how to fish the waters of Stòras Uibhist can be found at www.southuistfishing.com.
Mixed sporting weeks are available during the summer and into autumn, with wildfowling and stalking complementing the fishing. All sporting activities are organised by the dedicated game-keeping staff who actively manage the health and size of the wild deer herd and bird flocks to ensure they are healthy and sustainable and impact as little as possible on the crofting activities of the community.
Guests at Grogarry Lodge (www.grogarrylodge.com) take precedence for shooting activity, though when available outside parties can participate in wildfowling and stalking.Print This Page
