About this water

Brown trout
OS Grid Ref: NC 92100 58600

Grid Reference & Parking 11/923586. Follow A897, Melvich to Helmsdale road, parking in area on the north side of cattle-grid just before electrical substation. Through double gate, head SE uphill and along argo track ensuring forestry is to the left of the track until Lochan nan Clach Geala is reached, this Lochan is of no fishing interest. The track now leads a gentler, more direct southerly route to the NW corner of Seilge, where the boat can be launched from – overall walk time approx 35-40 minutes. Not a deep loch, reaching only depths of 10-12′ even in the middle, however, the best of the fishing is normally found closer to shore in waters of 6-8′. North bank always proves productive, especially around the point, as does the SE corner of the loch beyond the island. Producing superbly pink fleshed fish between 1/2lb – 1.5lbs from both boat and bank, Seilge can definitely be labelled as a premier Halladale loch where the balance of quality and quantity can be achieved!
