The River Oykel is one of the most famous and productive salmon fisheries in the Scottish Highlands. It is naturally split into two parts by the Falls, adjacent to the Hotel.
Fishing is by traditional fly only and strict conservation rules have been in place for many years.
Needless to say it is a very special privilege to fish the River Oykel, which unfortunately for new potential anglers, means it is fully booked and committed two years in advance and has been for many decades!
That aside, there is rarely a cancellation on the Lower Oykel, however there is in the early season on the Upper Oykel, May and June, the possibility of acquiring some fishing. If you wish to enquire about the fishing please email the Hotel, for the attention of The River Oykel Fishing Manager.
Don’t forget The Oykel Bridge Hotel is surrounded by beautiful hill lochs with a real chance of a specimen Brown Trout and in special places the Sea Trout of a lifetime!….
Here at the Oykel Bridge we are able to create a wide variety of fishing packages to suit individual groups. We can cater for large or small groups and create a package to suit your needs.
Immerse yourself in Scotland's hidden gems and explore the rich heritage of the glorious Highlands.
From Dunnet Head, Britain's most northerly point to the beautiful Dunrobin Castle, you really are spoilt for choice in the Scottish Highlands.
