Last week

Friars Carse Beat

Regular angler to the beat Pete Behan had 3 salmon at the end of September and early October from Policemans and Riding stone, A Dann had brown trout to a 1lb whilst fishing the Island Forrest and House Pool. L Wolstencroft had 4 grayling and 3 brownies in Marsdens & Policemans & Tony McCaffery had grayling to 2lb from Marsdens.

Late October regular anglers on the beat Steve & Ian had some good sport on the same day, Steve had a salmon of just under 13lbs a 6lb grilse followed by a 3lb sea trout, his pal Ian had a salmon of just under 14lbs. - really good to see reports of fish from the beat.

Given the way the river has been the last few weeks I think we’re all praying for some settled river height for the last few weeks of the season, there should be fish in the system now let us hope they just haven’t bolted straight through.

Up on the beat myself next week running the last course of the 2022 season so hoping for some good water and a bit of luck for clients, it would be nice for them to hook into one of the famous Nith ‘greybacks’.

The beat has a good mixture of pools to suit all so why not book yourself a day before the end of the season through FishPal.

Watch out or contact me direct for information on 2023 courses hat hopefully will be on in the following months: Feb, Apr, July, Sept & Nov. For more information contact Ian Griffin (GAIC/APGAI) Instructor at [email protected] 07760884450

Season so far

(Last Updated: Thursday 07 April)

There is no season so far report yet



Most salmon fishers will be saying this is a season to forget, bring on 2023. Grayling fishers will be wanting frost and the river to settle down. Andy Edgar reported some good grayling catches at the Dalswinton, the Nith could be worth a go. The Nith has had some big grayling and already this season a near 4 pounder was netted while fishing for sea trout. Remember to follow club rules when wading, we don't want to disturb salmon redds.
