29 October 2018Open Meeting

The current season ends on 31st October and you will have received your catch return forms for the season.  It is very important that we get all forms returned promptly so that we can report catches to the Fisheries Board in the required time.  
 
The Club is holding an open meeting at 7.30 pm on 12th November at the Perrins Centre.  Mr Bob Kindness will be speaking about his experience in the recovery of salmon stocks on the River Carron at Lochcarron. All past and current members are welcome to attend the meeting so please let anyone know who you think might be interested.

29 October 2018Grade 1

The Scottish Government have published the proposed categorisation for Scottish Salmon rivers for 2019 and the excellent news is that the River Alness has been moved from category 3 (compulsory catch and release) applied this year to back to our previous category 1 for the 2019 season.  The primary reason for the grade 1 category is the recognition of the effectiveness of the existing voluntary local management conservation interventions which mean that the salmon stocks are deemed to be sustainable.  This is thanks to the membership acting responsibly and returning a high proportion of fish over several years.  We will have to continue a strong conservation policy to retain the category 1 grading into the  future and it is good  to see that its value has been recognised.
