Ness Castle Lodges
The River Ness hosts one of the most productive summer and autumn runs of salmon in the North of Scotland with fresh fish being caught up to the last day of the season, mid October.
Ness Castle boasts over a mile of double bank salmon fishing, and has some of the finest fly water on the river, with pools such as the famous Black Stream, Lady Pool and The Laggan.
All of the pools are readily fished from the bank or are easily waded, although in higher water, fishing can be carried out from one of our four boats at the ghillie’s discretion.
Fishing is let for five rods and can be carried out equally well in both low or high water, with the river running gin clear regardless, this is due to Loch Ness acting as a giant filter and stopping any visible sediment getting into the river.
Our team are experts in all the nooks and crannies of the River and teach Spey Casting also.
Fresh fish run throughout the year. However, the most productive period is from early July until the season ends in mid-October.
