Argrennan Estate is situated
on a picturesque stretch of
the River Dee in the Parish of
Tongland, a short distance
from the vibrant artist town
of Kirkcudbright. Being at
the very bottom of the river,
this beat often boasts the
best annual salmon catches for
the river. Being under the
influence of the Galloway
Hydro Scheme, the beat is
normally most productive for
salmon during and on the fall
from water transfer between
Glenlochar Barrage and
Tongland Reservoir.
There are four named pools on
the beat (see map) in which
most fish are caught depending
on the height of water.
Access to the fishing can be
via an existing right of
pedestrian and vehicular
passage across the section of
track (see map). There is
adequate parking for three
vehicles on the most northerly
entrance.
Whilst very few spring salmon
enter the river in April and
May (movements of migratory
fish are recorded through
Tongland fish pass by a Vaki
Riverwatcher fish counter),
salmon migrate in greatest
abundance during the summer
months of July and August and
again, prior to spawning, in
October.
Wading deep into the river
channel should be avoided or
at least practiced with
precaution and should only be
done after familiarising
yourself with the channel
variations experienced during
times of water transfer from
Lock Ken/Glenlochar Barrage
upstream. Hydro operations
downstream at Tongland (which
require water to be fed into
Tongland Reservoir) can be
frequent and periodic
throughout the daytime during
times of high rainfall, or for
a single short spell once
daily in times of water
shortage.
Permitted methods include
fishing the fly and spinning.
All salmon caught must be returned. Returns of all fish caught must be made to Argrennan Estate.

Suggested flies and spinners:
Willie Gun, Munroe Killer,
Stoats tail, Silver Toby and
the Flying C

Accommodation: You may wish
to book accommodation within
the estate and Argrennan Lodge
is a beautiful period building
that sits at the main entrance
of Argrennan Estate. This
self-cater property sleeps
four people over two bedrooms,
has secure parking and a
private rear garden. For more
