Following the Government Briefing which advised that Fishing may begin again on Friday 29th May 2020, BAC members may now fish the Firth waters unrestricted, but there are distinct restrictions on fishing beats 1, 2 & 3 and of the distance travelled which all members must observe.
Beat 1 may be accessed from the left bank only. However, no member may fish the right bank of Beat 1 or fish Beats 2 and 3 at all which are accessed along the Beauly Holiday Park bank. BHP have advised the BAC committee that due to continued lock-down on site BAC access will only be permitted once we have reached Phase 3 of the current Scottish Government plan.
Members are advised not to travel more than 5 miles to fish, according to the Phase 1 guidelines, which unfortunately may rule out many members living outwith the immediate River Beauly area to fish the river. It may not be enforced but we ask members to use their discretion. The now usual hygiene routines should also be observed where there are any hard surfaces used by many fishers – gates, posts etc.

Beauly Angling Club provides members with affordable access to river and firth for Salmon and Sea Trout.
The club was founded during the Second World War by the late Simon Fraser, Lord Lovat, and became known as the Beauly Angling Club in the mid 1980s.
Our fishing on the River Beauly extends downstream from Lovat Bridge to Wester Lovat; this equates to around 7 miles of bank fishing with ten named pools.
The fishing on the inner half of the Beauly Firth is also included in club membership offering saltwater fly fishing, spinning and bait fishing predominately for Sea Trout. We have a number of exchange tickets set up with other Angling Clubs across Scotland.
We will have exchange tickets and also offer concessionary waters – please see the menu from the Members & Club Information pages after the Season begins
The club holds a number of friendly competitions for members held on different waters and regularly fields teams in inter-club competitions during the season, please see the Competitions page.
In 2014 we launched a junior member development programme aimed at bringing the next generation of anglers into the sport. We plan to have more Junior Fishing Days in 2020
Who can join?
The club is open to potential members from all over the Highlands & Islands. We would particularly welcome applications from potential junior members. Associate membership is available for other UK residents, and permits are available for visitors to our waters
