Trial season extension
The River Annan DSFB has a licence for experimental angling on the Annan granted by the Scottish Government to fish from the 16th of November until the 30th of November. This licence has been granted with a number of conditions. The fishing is on the main stem of the river only, effectively from Three Waters Meet to the Railway Viaduct at Annan.
The fishing is on a strictly catch and release basis. If a fish dies on an angler the fish must be handed into the District Salmon Fisheries Board and cannot be kept by the angler or the proprietor. The carcass will be used for research. All fishing must be by either fly or spinning with no more than one set of hooks. i.e one treble, one double or one single and the hooks should be either barbless or de-barbed.
District Salmon Fishery Board bailiffs will be mounting regular patrols to check that anglers not only have in their possession the required permits but also the out of season reporting form - to obtain one click here
Angler support in this project is greatly appreciated and we hope that you will catch lots of fresh fish and enjoy your time on the river.
