Fishing on the River Annan
The River Annan is an intimate river that throughout most of its length offers fishing for salmon and sea trout of the highest calibre. Almost the entire river is coverable by anyone with moderate ability with many of the beats offering classic fly water.
Depending on the time of year the sea trout fishing at night is an esoteric pleasure that is becoming more and more popular with visitors and all beats allowing 24hr fishing to accommodate this. The salmon fishing is primarily an autumn affair with very large fish (in excess of 30lb) being caught most years.
The opportunities for fishing on the river are highly varied and the pricing structure is remarkably competitive, perhaps one fifth of that on like-for-like beats on the better-known east coast rivers.
