The River Alness (also known as the Averon) has a catchment area of 205 square kilometres, rising in the high hills of the picturesque Kildermorie deer forest in Easter Ross and flowing for 24 miles to enter the tidal waters of the Cromarty Firth. The River Alness typically produces rod catches of 500-700 salmon & grilse each season of which about two thirds are caught on the Novar Fishings’ beats.
This picture perfect Highland river provides excellent salmon fishing opportunities during the summer months. With the main runs of grilse and summer salmon not starting until late June/early July. Given rain and good water levels sport can be excellent through the summer months – mid-July through September regarded as the best months. There is a late season run of large autumn salmon, with many between 12 to 16lb in October.
