Sea Trout Fishing on the River Nith

The Nith is the largest, and arguably the most productive and varied, of the Solway rivers. It offers excellent salmon and sea trout sport for anglers of all abilities and experience. Much of the fishing is available to visiting anglers on a day or weekly basis on Estate beats such as Drumlanrig Castle, Barjarg, Blackwood and Dalswinton; Association beats like the Upper Nithsdale Angling Association at Sanquhar, the Mid Nithsdale Angling Association at Thornhill (now run by Drumlanrig estate) and Dumfries and Galloway Angling Association at Carnsalloch, near Dumfries; Hotel water such as Friars Carse; and Burgh Fishing at Dumfries.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Nith

The River Nith has some excellent sea trout fishing, with a good year now producing around 2000 sea trout, although there has been a worrying decline in sea trout catches in recent seasons. The Nith can also produce in excess of 2000 salmon, with the season, as on the Tweed, running to the end of November. See also:
