Family Fishing Day at Dock Park

The Nith Catchment Fishery Trust hosted the third Family Fishing Day this year on the 23rd of October at the newly renovated Dock Park in Dumfries town centre.   We were extremely lucky with the weather and even got some sunshine in the afternoon.

Fishing instructors from Borderlines gave expert tuition to participants wanting to try their hand at different types of fishing and perfect their technique.  There were also activities for our younger participants, which included an array of river related colouring in and a mini fishing game.

A staff member from the NCFT was on hand to answer any questions about the river and inside the gazebo there was a tray containing hundreds of bugs and beasties belonging to the river, these were safely returned to the river at the end of the day.

Many people tried their hand at fishing, mums and dads included.  We hope to showcase more of these events in the future.  If you are interested in taking part in these free events, join our mailing list by emailing  All of our events are publicised on our Facebook page and on our Nith Events page.

This project is being part financed by Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund 2012-13 programme and the Holywood Trust.  We would like to thank the following organisations for donating fishing, time or fish for the project: Nith District Salmon Fishery Board, Solway Firth Partnership, Dalswinton Estate, Drumlanrig Estate, Upper Nithsdale Angling Association, Invicta Trout Fish Farm, Caerlaverock Estate and Douglas Hall Fisheries.
