Hotel Lochmaddy, Hotel North Uist, Fishing North Uist

Lochmaddy Hotel has a strong tradition with Anglers , Fishing North Uist is a truly wonderful experience and our resident "fishing expert" John Docherty is on hand to help with all your requirements.

North Uist has literally Hundreds of Lochs to Choose from, many hill lochs that accommodate bank fishing only, and some North Uist Estate provide Boats on. We have stunning Brown Trout from 3/4 pounds upwards to some caught at 6 and 7 pounds!! but 2 and 3 pounders are quite common.

We have some of the finest quality sea trout fishing with many people coming to savour the spectacular sport in the sea pools , sea trout can be caught from early march until the last day in October , the thrill of landing a lifetime specimen in the sea pools is a truly exceptional experience.

We also have the mighty Atlantic salmon , a little more difficult to find and even harder to land . Like sea trout the salmon don't have far to go from sea pools to fresh water in most cases its a matter of yards , so landing a fresh run fish in the sea pool or loch is fantastic sport.

Fishing is allocated on a roster system , John Docherty does the roster each morning allocating Hotel Guests first, Once hotel guests have been allocated there fishing beats for the day the remaining beats are then available to the general public to purchase . Hotel guests benefit from a better rate for fishing and have priority on fishing beats.

All North Uist Estate fishing requires a permit! you must purchase these either at Lochmaddy hotel or North uist estates office.
