Upper Makerstoun

Fishery

Regarded very much as middle Tweed, Makerstoun is a four-rod beat (two rods on Upper Makerstoun and two on Lower Makerstoun), located five miles upstream of Kelso and is one of the most private and photogenic parts of the river.

The whole beat is one and a half miles in length and has sixteen named pools ranging from deep flowing gullies to fast, well oxygenated streams, offering the salmon angler an excellent selection of water.

Both Upper and Lower Makerstoun share the services of the estate boatman from February through to the end of June. From September through to the end of the the season each beat has a full-time boatman. During the summer lets, no boatman is supplied.

Upper Makerstoun is let as a two-rod beat and benefits from a newly built modern fishing hut offering cooking and toilet facilities and a balcony with excellent views of the river. The hut also benefits from mains electricity. Access to the riverbank is mainly on foot via well-maintained paths and it is also possible to drive to a number of the pools. The beat has eight named pools and a variety of low and high water to fish in a broad range of conditions. The beat is served by three Tweed-style fishing boats.
