Dumfries Burgh

Fishery

Although the fishery extends some 8 miles or so, most of the activity is focussed on about 2 miles of the Nith and 1.5 miles of the Cairn (both banks with only some minor restrictions). The Nith has about 20 named pools the Cairn about 15.

The Nith runs through the town from the estuary to about 3/4 mile above the town centre and the fishery includes 2 miles on the lower Cairn. There is a mixture of pools suitable for fly, spinning or worming; no Sunday fishing.

Proximity to the town allows easy access to accommodation, toilets and refreshments. Much of the water is accessible from footpaths and nearby car parks - for example the Cakewalk and the Millgreen.

These particular areas can be extremely productive for worming or spinning in medium to high water.

No lifejackets or buoyancy aids are provided.

Fishers must sign a Gyrodactilus Salaris declaration which can be found here and they must also complete a catch return which can be found here.

Unfishable River Guarantee - if, on 3 days of a purchased week (6 days), the conditions are unfishable you may appeal in writing for a free weekly ticket for the next low season (ie between 25th February and 31 August).

Unfishable conditions determined on the advice from the Bailiffs of the River Board.
