From the 11th February 2017 till and including 31st March 2017 All Salmon, Wild or Farmed must by law are returned to the river irrespective of their condition. There are no exceptions. This will continue until such time the Scottish Government advise differently.
With the River being Cat2 for the 2017 season the following must be adhered to.
As of the 1st April 2017 till the 30th September2017 all members are able to take a maximum of 2 Salmon per angler per year and 10 Sea-Trout per angler per year. We will not be operating a tagging system for this. We do however require you to note exactly what you have caught on your permit and at the end of the season return this information to us.
The above has been implemented within the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries act 2003.
As of the 1st October till 31st October each year you as anglers will be required to return all Salmon, Wild or Farmed and Sea-Trout. Irrespective of their condition. There are no exceptions.
Grayling are catch and release with no exception.
Why are there restrictions on catching Salmon and Sea-Trout? The Scottish Government have suggested that we have a conservation plan in place whilst following the rules laid out in the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries act 2003.
