Last week

(Last updated: Tuesday 12th June)

With a lift in water at the weekend, and more anglers have been out in the evenings, the seatrout
catches have slowly started to pick up. I am hearing that there are good numbers of seatrout in the river from Langholm downstream and some good 4-6lb seatrout in the mix. Willow pool has provided some good sport recently.

Martin Coulthard is now looking after the Cannobie and Langholm Club water and
brings a wealth of knowledge and tactics to the river. Martin
will return info to you. email
