Friars Carse – 2024 Season Begins

Here we are at the start of another fishing season on the river Nith & the Friars Carse Beat.

River heights have not been good over the closed season, let’s hope they have allowed last years surviving fish to make a safe passage back to the sea and have not damaged the redds too much.

Given some steady levels it is always worth getting out and having a go, there may just be an early spring fish about, I’ve managed a couple myself in March so they can be there. Be mindful that there may still be some of last year’s models in the river and they need to be treated carefully and given plenty of time to recover whilst in the water before release.

Friars beat gives you some nice varied water to fish from slow deep runs to some nice streamy water. Fly, spin or worm is allowed on the beat and if you need any information of where to fish then just give me a call, I’m happy to help out fellow anglers.

Please remember when fishing the beat to let the Hotel know of your catch return even if you’ve not been successful, it helps them in knowing how the beat is fishing.

Fly Fishing Course dates for 2024 on the Friars Carse beat have now been agreed and published on my website  &  Facebook page  as well as throughout the year on Fishpal.

I’m up there myself later this month so hopefully I’ll have more info to share.

Places are starting to fill up so if you fancy joining us then contact me for more information,
