Wick Angling Association have launched a new web site to make it easier to buy permits and to record catches once the sport is allowed to resume. With Scottish Government today (21 May 2020) beginning to announce changes to lock down it may not be too long.

New web site

The Wick River is a relatively short and slow-moving spate river. However, do not let this description put you off having a cast on this far north water.

If angling is one of the pastimes you want to get going again take a look.

Nice photos of the river on the site.


The Scottish Government has today (21 May 2020) set out its initial plans for getting thing moving again. Angling is included in Phase One of the Plan to commence on 28th May. This is still subject to review or changes. See the plan at

Angling is mentioned Section 3 on page 22.
