Cardrona lies in an attractive part of Tweed-dale comprising mainly upland hills and small areas of mature parkland, coupled with the famous Tweed autumn run of large fish, it provides a memorable fishing experience in late summer and autumn. The fishings are adjacent to Cardrona Village on the right bank and the bottom of the beat marches with Glenormiston. The beat has been under new ownership since late 2007. The new owners are experienced anglers, most of whom have fished the beat for many years.
One of the most productive of the upper river beats, fish are usually present from September to the season's end. In a dry year, fishing may not start in earnest until October, however, in a wet summer, fresh fish can be present considerably earlier, with fish around in numbers in August. Sea trout are generally caught during the main salmon run, however the potential for the beat to produce summer sea trout at night has yet to be explored.
There is no ghillie to meet rods. Whilst the beat owners reserve the right to fish the water at the same time as paying guests, they will be very happy to show paying guests the beat, give precedence to pools and offer any advice if required.
There are 8 named pools, some have trees on one or other side and are most obviously fished by one or other bank. Further details, including a beat map and latest fishing reports, can be found on the web blog (click on associated website link opposite). A guide to the fishing pools is available on request by email. We specifically ask that courtesy to anglers fishing the Horsburgh beat opposite is given where both banks are fished.
There is good access to the beat from the A72 Innerleithen to Peebles road. The beat parking is next to the old Cardrona station house which has been renovated to provide Cardrona Village shop and cafe with a wide range of hot refreshments. There are other areas elsewhere on the beat with parking and these are marked on the beat map.
