COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS FOR FISHING ON THE RIVER LOCHY IN 2020
It is necessary this year to put in some restrictions on the fishing in order to keep our staff and customers safe during this pandemic. We do hope that you understand and we apologise for this temporary inconvenience. Should the situation or national guidelines change we will be issuing updated advice. Thank you for your assistance – together we can all enjoy the river and the fishing in spite of the difficulties at the moment.
Camisky Fishing Room, Car Park and WC
Please note that these are now all out of bounds. Please do not use the car park at Camisky Steading. The Fishing Room and the WC will be locked at all times.
Monday mornings (or first day of fishing)
Starting beats are listed below – please note these are listed for a Monday start so please go up 3 beats if you are fishing a half week starting Thursday.
Please start fishing at your convenience. Billy Neil, the Fishing Coordinator, will be visiting each beat between 9am and 10.30 am in rotation starting on Beat One. Please will the head of the party stay relatively close to the hut on each beat so Billy can come and see you.
If you require any advice or directions to your beat etc. please telephone Billy on 07484 841729
Boats, huts and other
All boats are all out of bounds and locked (Billy can give advice if you wish to drive round to the right bank and fish – or advise if the river is low enough to wade across at certain points. Please ask first.)
All huts are out of bounds and are locked. Outdoor tables may be used but the use of personal hand sanitisers etc are advised. Please also be aware of touching the gates on Beats 1, 3 and 4.
If a ghillie has been employed please respect the 2m rule at all times – ie there will be no tying on of flies, taping rod joints etc
There will be no Catch Return forms this year. All catches should be reported to Billy Neil. IT IS VITAL THAT YOU CHECK FOR ADIPOSE FIN CLIPS. PLEASE TELL ALL OF YOUR PARTY. ALSO PLEASE WHERE EVER POSSIBLE TRY AND PHOTOGRAPH YOUR FISH (IDEALLY WITH YOU HOLDING IT CLOSE TO THE WATER) AND SEND ALL PHOTOS TO JON GIBB OR BILLY NEIL BY TEXT OR WHATSAPP.)
Once again, we know these restrictions limit what we are normally able to do on the river but we very much appreciate your cooperation as we all get through this difficult time. Thank you.
