Atlantic salmon have been returning to the Clyde in reasonable numbers for some years now.
Considering that the Clyde salmon never returned to the river for over 100 years due to the level of pollution caused by the industrial revolution, their return is a great success story and testament to the hard work managing the fishery carried out by all the UCAPA volunteers.
As a recovering salmon fishery, stocks are still very vulnerable and UCAPA support catch and release.
Sea trout numbers are still very low on the Clyde and on a national scale so it was decided some time ago that all sea trout must be returned.
Please ensure to abide by the COVID-19 restrictions.
