Lewis and Harris have some of the best, most readily available and inexpensive freshwater game fishing in the whole of Scotland. Salmon and sea trout fishing is available at over 20 fisheries, many within just 20 miles of the Islands main town Stornoway, while trout fishing is available on the hundreds of trout lochs scattered around the Island. The brown trout fishing season runs from March 15th to October 6th with May, June and July being the best months, while the salmon and sea trout season runs from April 1st until October 15th with July, August and September being the best fishing months.

The Stornoway Angling Association (SAA) was formed in 1931 and today has a membership of about 200 members annually. SAA membership is open to local, as well as visiting anglers, and members have access to some superb fishing. This includes salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Creed fishery near Stornoway, salmon and trout fishing from the Association’s 2 boats located on the remote, and picturesque, Loch Langavat and trout fishing (bank and free use of boats) on over a dozen lochs located within 10 miles of Stornoway.

Falls pool on the river Creed. SAA members who live on the Island also benefit from discounted fishing rates at a number of local estates, exchange fishing in Uist and entry to a range of competitions held throughout the season at some of the best fisheries on the Islands. Full details of this fishing are provided elsewhere on the website.

SAA memberships are readily available at Sportsworld in the centre of Stornoway and, 2017 prices, cost £5 (local junior anglers), £25 (local concession) and £35 (adults and all visiting anglers). We hope the SAA can help both local and visiting anglers enjoy the wealth of excellent fishing that is available on the Islands and welcome any enquiries from interested anglers.
