  • Sea Trout/Salmon > 25 February to 31 October

RETURNS

All members and visitors are required to complete the enclosed Fishing Return and return it to the Jim Domm or Agent, as soon as possible, but no later than 14 November.  These returns are to comply with legal requirements.

SIZE LIMITS

  • Brown Trout > 10 ozs
  • Sea Trout (South Uist Angling Club waters) > 16 ozs. or 13 inches
  • Sea Trout (South Uist Estate waters) > 1 lb. 8 ozs. or 18 inches
  • Salmon > No salmon can be kept and any caught must be returned carefully

Your fishing return should be based on these size limits. As a general rule, fish under those limits and salmon smolts, should be carefully returned, but brown trout of a lesser size, taken from a loch with a surfeit of smaller fish, may be kept.  Larger brown and sea trout should be returned carefully.

SUAC PROMOTES CATCH & RELEASE

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 is a method that SUAC in conjunction with Storas Uibhist promote to protect our environment and our fish for the years ahead.

 

Catch Returns

Please remember your catch returns – They are vital !
