We are thinking of heading up here in a few weeks for a long weekend.
I have had a search but not really got much info. The place we are staying hires out Yaks and have a rib also. Is this likely to be productive or is there any other areas in this region I should consider.
Thanks Dave

I just surveyed this area including L.L.Broom so have a decent idea what the bottom is like but no great info on the fishing side I'm afraid!

Inshore the majority of the loch is pretty shallow and kelpy in areas turning to soft mud and some reefs further out, I did manage a few small pollack on one of our down days spinning feathers from the shore but I do mean small.

Didn't venture any further than Badluarach (sp) jetty as I didn't have time but there are rocks towards the mouth of the loch on the south shore that may be worth a try. Talking to local skippers they do a lot of pollacking and mackeral fishing both inshore and further out but a lack of info regarding bait fishing (although we did see some nice big prawns on the underwater video). Towards the head of the loch (above Camusnagaul) the water is quite stained and the floor very soft, black mud. Pretty unpleasant stuff.

I hope that is a little help, as I say I don't have much info regarding the fishing but I did spend a few weeks studying the seafloor in the area!

I fished the rocks on the south entrance to the loch about two years ago,we took pollock to 4lbs and mackeral both with jelly worms and kosters,the only bad point was the midges,the only way escape was to go out on a boat,we caught the same size and type of fish along with codling up to about 3lbs,
