(Last updated: Monday 17th August)
The rivers are currently sitting near to summer low and prospects look best from Wednesday onwards when rain is forecast to return locally.
Day lets at this time of year are very reasonable and on the Luce in particular, a permit can be purchased online for the Stair Estates water at £30 rod/day - increasing to £60 rod/day from September. Anglers on the Luce mainly focus their fishing effort towards sea trout but it is likely salmon will soon dominate in the catches. On the Fleet, fishing is available at £22 rod/day on the Murray Usher Foundation section of the river where night fishing for sea trout can be very popular. On the Cree, day lets are all between £20-£30 rod/day at this time of year as they are upon the Bladnoch beats and Urr lower river beat (except for Saturdays when a surcharge is added).
If you're out fishing a Galloway River and have anything to report, please send a message and any photos of your fishing beat and/or catches to email@example.com.
