Why fish the Firth Of Forth

Historically, salmon fishing has been renowned in Scotland, but don’t forget we also have wonderful trout fly fishing in rivers, lochs and ponds, along with grayling angling and to a lesser extent but with some great specimens, FishPal also cater for coarse anglers too.  Take a look at the Fisheries list in the menu to see the fisheries and beats which show their beats off with any availability shown, or do a *search (Book fishing) for Salmon, sea trout, brown trout or grayling. Catches, river reports and river levels are also available in the menu as well as tackle advice and fishing regulations.

The rivers in the Firth of Forth offer the angler a variety of fishing.

The two main salmon rivers are the Teith and the Forth.

The other smaller rivers offer some excellent Trout and Seatrout fishing. Many of these fisheries are in Club ownership, however day tickets can be available to visiting anglers.

About the rivers

The Teith

The river Teith.

The source of the river is on the slopes of Beinn Chabhair to the west of Loch Doine and Loch Voil. The River Balvag flows from Loch Voil through the Strathyre Forest to Loch Lubnaig. From the loch the River Leny flows south-eastwards towards Callander where it is joined by the Eas Gobhain. Below this junction the river becomes the Teith which flows past Doune and the Blair Drummond Safari Park in a series of long pools, fast glides and swift runs to join the River Forth at Drip upstream of Stirling.



The Forth

The river Forth.

The Forth flows from Loch Ard in the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park which lies west of Aberfoyle. Although the river generally flows eastwards its course to the tidal waters of the Firth of Forth is erratic with countless changes in direction as it meanders across Flanders Moss to Stirling. The river has a number of tributaries - The Duchray, Kelty, and Goodie Waters, the River Teith and the Allan Water. The Duchray rises on the eastern slopes of Ben Lomond and flows through the Ard Forest to enter the Forth upstream of Aberfoyle. Approximately six miles downstream from Aberfoyle the Kelty Water joins the river at Gartrenich Moss, and the Goodie Water - which drains the Lake of Mentieth - joins the river further downstream near Coldoch. The rivers main tributary - the River Teith, enters approximately 400yds north of the A84 road bridge at Drip on the outskirts of Stirling. Downstream of the Teith junction the Allan Water joins the Forth at Netherton.

The Tyne in East Lothian

The East Lothian Tyne is an attractive and secluded river of approximately 30 miles in length, rising in the Moorfoot hills and flowing eastwards into Belhaven Bay, by Dunbar. ELAA lease and manage the majority of the river, from above Pencaitland down to the tide at Tyninghame.

The Tyne has a good stock of wild trout, and is managed exclusively as a wild trout fishery above West Mills Weir in Haddington. Below Haddington, the river is stocked to supplement the river. There are still plenty of wild trout from Haddington downstream.

The Tyne gets a good run of sea trout from around May onwards, these fish are often sizeable, and provide a challenge to the angler.

The odd salmon may be encountered, given good water levels and time of year.
