The rivers are currently at summer low and whilst we have endured a very dry and hot two weeks, conditions are to dramatically change from tonight with heavy rainfall forecast. Keep an eye on the river flows for up-to-date river levels.
Despite the recent hot weather, a good number of salmon have been coming through the fish counter on the Dee and this drop in air pressure will very likely spur fish on up the systems.
Following the recent Scottish Government announcement on Conservation Limits - all salmon must be returned unharmed to the river throughout the entire fishing season across all Galloway Rivers. Legislation on this will come into force from April 1st 2016.
