The Association was formed in the mid 60's with the aim of improving fishing in the Badenoch area.


The Association controls fishing on the River Spey from the mouth of the River Tromie to the Spey Dam at Laggan.  There is also fishing on the A86 side of Loch Laggan and part of Loch Ericht.


Association waters are covered by a protection order issued under the freshwater and salmon fisheries act.


It is illegal to commence fishing without first obtaining a permit.

Fishing is mostly brown trout, but a lot of salmon/Sea Trout are also caught. There is also some good pike fishing between Lochan Uvie and Laggan.  Loch Laggan itself holds some specimen pike.


The Association waters are in the vicinity of Kingussie, Newtonmore and Laggan.


Nice Grilse caught on our beats in July 2020
