Salmon Fishing Regulations
These need to be considered under various headings as rivers, beats and booking systems will add to the requirements set by statute. If you use the FishPal booking system on this site (or others) you will be asked to read and agree to the relevant conditions before being allowed to book.
In particular, please note that there is no salmon or sea trout fishing on Sundays anywhere in Scotland (except the Border Esk in Dumfriesshire which is dealt with under English law, since much of the river is in England).
Most other relevant current legislation will normally be included in river sections, but if you want to see the details, please refer to these main fisheries acts & regulations:
Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003
Aquaculture and Fisheries (Scotland) Act 2007
The Conservation of Salmon (Prohibition of Sale) (Scotland) Regulations 2002
Each river has its own statutory regulations and closed season and often adds other regulations which may not be statutory, but will be insisted on by all worthy beats on the river. There is a detailed page in each river section that you should consult (click 'Areas & Rivers' in the menu line above).
Each beat will have its own conditions covering such items as hours of fishing, rotation systems, methods of fishing etc. You can see a link to these by clicking on the beat name in any of the availability pages, and to book you have to agree to them.
