Kirkcowan Angling Club


Formed in 2016 with support from the Kirkcowan Community Development Trust Kilgallioch Fund, the Kirkcowan Angling Club offers its member's affordable salmon and trout fishing upon 10 miles of water on the River Bladnoch and Tarf Water, near the village of Kirkcowan. The fishing is essentially for club members, who must reside in the Parish of Kirkcowan, but two tickets are available daily for visiting anglers.

The club has extensive waters on both the rivers Bladnoch and Tarf upstream of the confluence of the two rivers. There is over 10 miles of river in total but not all parts are suitable for fishing and care should be taken in those areas where the banks are overgrown or soft under foot.

There is good fishing for trout and depending on the river conditions, these spate rivers can be very good for salmon from July onwards. During the 2020 season, 40 salmon/grilse were caught on Kirkcowan Angling Club water from early July to late October. Parts of the Bladnoch also hold pike which have been known to grow to over 20lbs.

The Club rules are those recommended by the River Bladnoch District Salmon Fishery Board. Within the Salmon Conservation Regulations for 2023, the River Bladnoch has been categorised as grade 3, requirng all salmon/grilse caught to be immediately returned to the water after capture.
