Bemersyde

Fishery

The river loops past the Eildon Hills in a beautiful wooded gorge giving fishers complete seclusion from the outside world.

There is an excellent hut with fully equipped kitchen and gas BBQ available for tenants use on the middle beat for all rods. There are four boats, two for fishing and two for ferrying from bank to bank. Access is by car down a private track to a small parking area about 100ft above the rod hut. From there the path is too steep for vehicles and you have to walk the remaining short distance.

From the 1st February to 3rd September 2022 one ghillie is employed and four rods fish each day on a syndicate basis (Please contact the fishery to be placed on the waiting list in case anything arises) From the 5th September 2022, six rods are let on a daily basis with two ghillies provided. During this period, the beat is split into three, with rods fishing in pairs and rotating on an am/pm basis.

The prestigious Bemersyde Award for the best salmon caught and released on the river is held annually at Bemersdye House.
