Loch Tollie is a fine loch which offers readily accessible fishing
for wild brown trout. It is a roadside loch enabling anglers to
drive right to the bank and boat. This makes it ideal for short
sessions and for anglers wishing to enjoy a lochside picnic lunch
with other members of the family.
It is a loch which comes into form early in the season. The best
months are May, June and July. Fly fishing and spinning are permitted
from both bank and boat. Favourite flies are Black Pennell, Invicta,
Greenwells Spider, Soldier Palmer and Peter Ross.
How to get there
Loch Tollaidh is just about the easiest loch to access in the Gairloch
area, it being on the roadside. From Gairloch take the Poolewe road
for about two and a half miles. The loch is by the road on the right
hand side. At the Gairloch end of the loch a good track leads down
to a lochside parking area and jetty, where some of the boats are
located. Cars may be parked here while fishing.
