For a relatively small river it can be very productive, both in terms of the quality of fish caught and the quantity. Often called "The little Gem" the Nairn can provide fantastic sport for local anglers and visiting fishers alike.

The River Nairn rises in headstreams on the slopes of Carn Ghriogair in the Monadhliath Mountains and flows North-Eastwards through Strathnairn for 38 miles to empty into the Moray Firth at Nairn.

The Nairn Angling Association fishing consists of a 8 mile stretch of mostly single bank fishing offering the angler some of the best Salmon & Sea Trout Association water in Scotland. The fishings are over some 4 beats and include some excellent fly water.

The Nairn Angling Association dates back to 1923 and its aim is to promote and improve fishing, on an 6 mile stretch of the river Nairn for both local people and visitors alike.
