Salmon & Sea Trout Fishing
Skye’s longest river, The Snizort is incredibly picturesque and offers challenging fishing for salmon and sea trout fishing – recording the highest catches year after year. The upper reaches are narrow, steep and fast, a typical highland spate river. The lower beats are more accessible with some great pools and glides. Night is also fishing available for the keen sea trout angler.
