Ardtornish Estate is incredibly fortunate to have salmon and sea trout fishing on the River Aline, an especially beautiful west coast spate river. Running into Loch Aline itself, the River Aline is the route than many salmon take year after year to reach their spawning grounds in the higher estate.
The River Aline is divided into six beats and costs £30.00 per day for two rods from July to the end of the season in October, and £10.00 per day in May and June.
The five year averages for salmon and sea trout up to and including 2015 are 20 and 39 respectively, with an increasing proportion of salmon over 12lbs.
All fishing must be booked in advance and is by fly only (spinning, bait fishing or lead weights are not permitted). Popular patterns for the Aline include Ally’s Shrimp, Cascade and Silver Stoat’s Tail.
You can check water levels on the river and book your fishing online using the buttons on the right hand of this page. To view the different beats on the Aline, use the map below and select Fishing Beats from the drop down menu.
“The untamed rivers and sea lochs of this rare, family-run estate in the western Highlands have us hooked”
