(Last updated: Wednesday 31st May)
The short spell of rain yesterday afternoon has brought both local rivers up marginally but overall, water is very low at the moment. Prospects for the week ahead could improve, with some rain forecast for Thursday and again, across the weekend.
Scottish Government have recently reviewed Conservation Limits - which has meant changes to the Galloway river categories for the 2017 season as follows.
The River Cree changes from a category 3 to a category 1. The Luce, Bladnoch and Urr have changed from category 3 to category 2 rivers. The Fleet and Dee remain at category 3. All salmon must be returned unharmed to the river throughout the entire fishing season across all category 3 rivers.
Please familiarise yourself with the amended DSFB Conservation Measures put in place on the Cree, Bladnoch and Urr which can be found via the Fishing Regulations section of the website.
