Sea Trout Fishing on the River Cree

The Cree runs from Loch Moan to the Solway Firth below Newton Stewart. Afforestation in its upper course has led to a faster run off after rain and increased acidification, both of which have an adverse effect on the fishing. Nevertheless, salmon and sea trout can still be taken in the lower section of the river, which has some good fly fishing water.

River Cree Sea Trout Fishing

The West Galloway Fisheries Trust is making efforts to improve the river habitat to halt the decline in stocks of migratory fish. Recent sport has been confined to the lower 8 miles of river, from its confluence with the Minnoch to its outfall in Wigtown Bay. Annual catches have fallen in recent times, from around 400 salmon in the late eighties to an average of around 200 today, with a similar decline in sea trout catches. The best months for sea trout are June and July, while the most productive months for salmon are September and October. Newton Stewart & District Angling Association makes fishing available on a daily or weekly basis for visitors, or through association membership for local permanent residents, or for associate membership for non residents. All options represent excellent value for money.
