Established in 1958, Dounreay Fly Fishing Association is the leading fly fishing club in Caithness.

The club owns and maintains twenty boats which are distributed around ten beautiful Caithness wild trout lochs. Famed for their unspoilt scenery, the Caithness lochs boast some of the best wild trout fishing in the UK – a true anglers’ paradise!

Becoming a member of Dounreay Fly Fishing association is the best way to hire our boats and acquire a permit to fish our lochs. We offer a reasonably priced annual membership, although boat hire and permits can also be arranged for visitors not wishing to join the club.
