5046aab1dfb1The angling club offers exclusive fishing for salmon and sea trout across 8 miles of mostly double bank river. This includes some excellent fly water within its 7 beats and 40 named pools.

For 2017 the association have kept permit prices the same as last year.

The Nairn is relatively small river and can be very productive, both in terms of the quality and size of fish caught. Their five year average is 125 salmon and 14 sea trout. The river has been changed to a Category 1 River.

After a mild winter with no big floods to cause any major damage, the angling association are looking forward to the new season. The river during 2016 showed a good increase in the number of grilse being caught.

The river opens on the 4th March with the usual ceremony at 10.00am at the Jubilee Bridge A good turn out is expected and given favourable conditions there is every chance of hooking a fish from opening day onwards – read more.
