Welcome to the South Uist Angling Club – South Uist Fishing

Welcome to the South Uist Angling Club.
The South Uist Angling Club has unique fly fishing opportunities on hundreds of varied lochs,
lochans and sea pools on South Uist and Benbecula.
South Uist Estates (Storas Uibhist) controls all the fishing on South Uist and Benbecula and
reserves the fishing on around two dozen lochs. All the other hundreds of lochs along with
the seapools are available via the South Uist Angling Club.
The club has 20 boats situated throughout the area from the North of Benbecula to the
South of South Uist along with almost endless bank fishing. You can take your pick from
unique shell sand machair lochs on the west side which create the perfect growing
conditions for wild brown trout, or from the peaty lochs of the east side where the trout
grow more slowly but may never see an angler from one year to the next.
There is a huge variety of options. Fish famous lochs such as East Bee or Loch Druidibeg for
fantastic quality wild brown trout and sea trout. Fish a machair loch for stunning brown
trout within sound of the Atlantic breakers. Try fishing the tidal pools of the “Fords” for sea-
liced sea trout, or walk miles into the hills and moors for perfect solitude and prolific trout
lochs around every corner.
Club membership is reserved for full time residents of Uist (i.e. Berneray to Eriskay) but day
and weekly visitor permits for bank and boat fishing are available locally, by phone and the
Junior (under 18) residents can join the club for free and visitors under 18 can fish for free
providing they have a permit.
Members of SUAC, and visitors who have valid SUAC permits, are entitled to fish all the Club
waters including on Sundays. (Brown trout only on Sundays). Bank fishing on any of the
Club’s waters does not need to be booked, but Club boats must be booked in advance.

Our superb wild trout and salmon populations must be preserved and the environment in which they live protected in order to ensure that future generations can also enjoy fishing. Catch and release where possible is a method that SUAC in conjunction with Storas Uibhist promote to protect our environment and our fish for the years ahead.
