About this water

Lake
Brown trout and Sea trout
Assynt, Scotland

The Manse loch, along with Upper Loch Roe and Loch an Tuirc, get some runs of sea trout and the occasional salmon. Although reports have been a bit patchy in recent years there has been a re-stocking programme and all are worth trying in the right conditions. The Trust tagged some smolts and any caught showing coloured dye behind the left eye must be reported to permit vendors, but any information on catches would be helpful.
There are boats at all three lochs.
