Fishing on the River Shiel

Salmon and sea trout fishing can be arranged on a weekly basis for up to six rods through the owners of the south bank, Shielbridge Ltd. A self-catering cottage is available at through which the owners of the fishing can be contacted.

The fishing on the River Shiel is managed in conjunction with the owners of the north bank. By arrangement both banks are fished on rotation by dividing the river between upper and lower beats and changing-over at 1.00 p.m. each day. Full details can be made available.

The season extends from early May to end September and a catch and release policy has been adopted.

At the present time there fishing is available for weeks 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 30, 36, 38 and 39 during the 2023 season.
