Fishing on the River Tweed

The River Tweed has always been internationally famous for its salmon fishing, with people coming from all over the world to fish it.

It ranks among the very top salmon rivers in the world. The 2013 Season, despite inclement fishing weather, finished with 14,794 salmon recorded to the River Tweed Commission and 1,451 Sea-trout. A number of large fish above 25lbs were caught in 2013 as well as recording the largest fish caught in Scotland for the second year running, and thereby returning the Malloch Trophy to Tweedside.

There is huge range of fishing available throughout the salmon season, which runs from 1st February to 30th November, much of it at surprisingly low prices.

When not fishing, you will find the Scottish Borders a fascinating area to explore, with many interesting things to see and do

Tweed's fame as a salmon river has meant that it has often been ignored for its other types of fishing. This is quite wrong, as both its brown trout and sea trout fishing are excellent and too often underestimated.

Permit policies differ from club to club, but generally they offer daily, weekly and season tickets.

Tickets are available here on-line too from a number of Trout Clubs.
