We have our own private half mile stretch of the river Nith which offers Game and Coarse fishing. This part of the river is especially renowned for its specimen Brown Trout, Pike and Grayling.
We request that any Salmon and very large Sea Trout are returned alive to the river as part of the conservation effort. (after photographs !)
Our part of the river is a mixture of fast runs into pools and long deep stretches. We allow any legal method of fishing at any time. ie Spinning, Fly or bait.
Large stretches of the banks are completely free from obstacles and thus ideal for the fly fisher, amateur or experienced.
All fishing is free to guests who have their own fishing tackle.
Tackle can be hired at a cost of £10 per day.
There is an additional returnable £10 deposit to cover any losses or damage to tackle.
Fishing lessons and gillie service are available at £15 per half an hour.
Parts of the river are very deep and when in spate very fast flowing. As such it is not suitable for children to fish unaccompanied.
An alternative might be for children to fish in our private Garepool Burn and Glen.
At spate times the burn can also have large fast volumes of water so discretion by parents is advised.
When you see the Otters, Herons, Dippers and Kingfishers about, you know you are in with a good chance of a fish!
