River Fishing

My local area is not over endowed with famous Trout Fishing Rivers. Locally we have the River Carron and Devon as well as the Teith and Forth.
The River Forth is limited to small sections near the City of Stirling, where it tends to be tidal, and is mainly for Salmon and Sea trout. The Teith has good quality Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing but there seem to be few public sections, some beats are for the very rich only!
It looks a cracking river though.
This season anyway I will limit my main fishing in rivers to the

  • River Carron
  • River Clyde
  • River Annan

With occasional forays to

  • Upper River Tweed near Peebles
  • River Tummel

      Darren, personally I would prefer they didn’t stock it at all, and let the wild trout populate the river, however I also recognise that it’s technically a river in recovery and probably needs some help. If you want fishing where you can easily catch fish, maybe you should stick to a commercial trout fishery. I look at fishing as a challenge and while we all like to catch something once in a while, drawing a blank isn’t the end of the world. I am pretty sure the level of stocking’s not to blame for your inability to catch. For whatever reason the fish haven’t switched on yet. That will change.

      I am neither a member of the committee nor spokesperson of the club. I have no knowledge of what stocking has been carried out this year. If you have such an enquiry I suggest you address them to the secretary of LASAC and I am sure she ( Stella ) will be happy to help. I am not aware of any “patter of bull” so have no idea to what you refer. Money can’t make fish move, or impale them on your hook. Just because the fish aren’t moving or visible doesn’t mean they are not there.
