Sparkling waters

Ceud Mile Failte - A hundred thousand welcomes to the web site of Inverness Angling Club. Our club is one of Scotland’s premier angling associations dedicated to providing rewarding and affordable game angling for all. We can promise you enjoyable angling on a beautiful river which has built a solid reputation for its catches of salmon, grilse and sea trout - and traditional Highland hospitality.

These clear, sparkling waters, fed by the famed Loch Ness, have delivered decades of delight to the region’s anglers and visitors from many parts of the UK and the world. A range of attractive pools offer interesting double bank fishing. Like most salmon rivers, catches have fluctuated over the last few years. But there’s always the chance of a fish. The five year average at 2023 was 75 salmon and grilse and the 10 year average was 132.
