    The Roughty River is open for salmon and sea trout fishing in 2021. This lovely river drains a catchment of 78 square miles and is approximately 20 miles long. It gets a run of spring salmon and a very good run of grilse from mid June to late July. It also gets reasonable runs of sea-trout. Angling access is good throughout the system. Two Angling organizations manage most of this river and are tourist angler friendly.
