Fideach Angling Club

Fideach Angling Club was formed by an enthusiastic group of local fishermen in 2003 after acquiring a 21-year lease on the Laxdale/Blackwater estuary and rivers.

Initially, the club implemented an improvement programme to increase fish numbers to their former sustainable levels following on from decades of netting rights being leased, illegal netting, and neglect. The fishings had spiralled into an almost irreparable state, verified by electrofishing surveys and redd counts. The latter being no redds found the year prior to the formation of the angling club. A stocking programme was implemented on the advice of the Outer Hebrides Fisheries Trust. This Regenerated the fisheries, resulting in positive catch returns and providing opportunities for anglers.

We have Estuary, River, and Inland Loch fishing for Salmon and Sea Trout:
River – Blackwater and Laxdale.
Estuary – Tong Pool and Steinish Pool.
Inland Loch – Garbhaig.

We have an average membership of 50 anglers, open to both Locals and Visitors.
