Wick Angling Association
The season opens on 11th February and closes on the 12th October. Generally, it is May before the river gets any significant runs of salmon, however salmon are occasionally landed during March and April.
May and June can provide good fishing and the fish are normally a good average size (10-14 pounds). Our Grilse run usually starts around mid-July and excellent numbers of fish can run the river in good water conditions. The run peaks in August, but some fish will continue to enter the river until the season end.
Fly fishing is allowed throughout the season and bait is allowed from 1st April to 15th September and spinning is allowed from 11th February through to 15th May. No prawn or shrimp fishing is permitted.
Wick Rivers 10 year average catch is currently 700 fish per season, This has increased over the last 30 years from around 400 fish and is testament to the work the association has carried out on the river during this period.
