    Surprising to see that a new thread has yet to be started for the Thurso, so here we go! Seems to have been a steady start to the season, but with 2 fish landed yesterday - one on B3 and one on B13 - it seems they are pretty well spread through the system, and on their way in. Tight lines to...

    Thurso River opened today (11th) with the first cast just below the bridge at Halkirk. Plenty of the well known faces gathered for the toast to the river on the bank of the Comlifoot Pool then the first cast was sent out. Shortly after we headed back to the Ulbster Arms hotel for a bacon roll...

    Was looking at the Thurso site and saw a picture of a sand bar below Loch More that the photographer said had a kelt swimming around on top of it. It reminded me of catching a kelt in late July in a place called Rattling Brook near the mouth of the Big River in Labrador. The kelt was in a...

    The River Finn in Ireland is situated in County Donegal and drains into Lough Foyle , this is a truly spate river , and perhaps as such is one of the hardest to get right , but get it on the right conditions and id say it would hold its own with any river in UK / Ireland . Allowing for the...

    Morning chaps & ladies. Wondered if anyone knows if it's possible to fish the Thurso and to rent a cottage self catering etc or is it all through the Ulbster Arms(?)? Always wanted to fish the Thurso but much prefer self catering (unsocial old sod) I understand a lot of people are wanting to...

    The Thurso was in big demand for 2017, after a few good weeks fishing during 2016, I'd be interested to hear from those returning rods , and also those fishing it for the first time on how your trip went this year.

    I am having a few days up on the helmsdale last week in July as was going to have a session or two up on the thurso. I havent fished there and was wondering where to fish and what time before/after the tides are thought to be more productive. Cheers

    Just back from a week on the Thurso - slow start with a low river but a deluge on Tuesday put the river up 70 inches which is the biggest June flood in over 20 years. This put the fishing out for a couple of days but Friday saw the river slowly dropping and fish starting to appear. Over Friday...
