Klauss Kroell landed a 6 1/2 lb trout on Friday on the river which is the biggest trout we have had in many years. It was returned to the water so it is still out there!
September proved to be another good month on the fishing front with 42 salmon caught. We have now 102 fish for the year, with 10 days still to go so all in all it has been a pretty good season, especially after the poor start. We think we have got a reasonable run of fish this year and over two thirds of the fish have been returned which will help the spawning season.
Unfortunately we have not experienced the recent heatwave that has been hitting much of the south!

The fishing season at Uig ended on 15th October and we had a total of 111 salmon, 35 sea trout and 268 brown trout. The salmon catch was above our five year average so considering we had a bad July and also a slow end to the season, we were pretty pleased. We also caught quite a few sea trout in October which was encouraging, including a 6 1/2 pounder which was an absolute cracker!
The weather over the last few weeks has not been great but it is a beautiful evening here today - photo attached.

“Uig Lodge is such a special place. It's hard to describe in words but as soon as you see that view over Uig sands everything else melts away. It really is the perfect place to get away from it all.”
