READ GUIDANCE IN FULL

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.

Our 10 year average currently sits at 700 fish caught 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.

Book Your Fishing On Wick River.

We limit visitor permits to 10 rods per day.

Access to the river and parking areas are shown on the river map. Please ensure that you park considerately, and in particular, do not park in front of gates or block off access routes. The association depends heavily on the goodwill of farmers for access and we do not want to give any cause for concern. With that in mind, please also do not walk through fields of crops, take the outer edges, and please take your litter home with you.
