Loch Information: Being the most productive and famous of all the Caithness Lochs, Loch Watten is regarded by many anglers as "The Leven of the North". This natural and unspoiled loch attracts many visitors year after year to fish for real "wild" brown trout.

The crystal clear water with a lime rich base, and an average depth of 7-8 foot is a fly fishers dream, with 90% of the sport being floating lines and top of the water techniques. Fishing by boat is most productive and an outboard motor and drogue is recommended as Watten is 3 miles long by mile wide.

The average weight of the trout are about 1lb and are blood red in colour but most daily baskets host a few in the 1 - 2lb bracket. Every season provides a few trophy fish in the 3-4lb range and can be as silver as a sea trout or a true "yellow belly" brownie with big red spots
