These lower Eden beats have the cream of the early spring fishing and are from two to three miles from the Solway
estuary, the river is here influenced by the tide on anything over eight meters and a tide book is recommended.
There are two beats upper and lower which are rotated on odd and even days, there are four rods per beat which are let on
the basis that you buy a named day for the whole salmon season.
All fish caught before June 16th have to be returned (EA byelaw) after that there is a two fish limit.
The summer fishing can be very productive in low water with runs of very large fish early in June entering the river
along with sea trout.
The grilse run starts around late July followed by the autumn run in August and September which can be
exceptional. From September 10th all hen fish are required to be returned unharmed to the river.
The brown trout and grayling fishing is excellent along with very good sea trout fishing in the summer.
The beats are well maintained, there is good access and the majority of wading is easy.
