River Nith 2019 Fishing Season Opening Event

The Nith District Salmon Fishery Board, in association with Dumfries and Galloway Angling Association, are hosting an opening event for the 2019 salmon fishing season on the River Nith at Carnsalloch on Monday 25th of February.  This event is intended to bring the river community together to celebrate the commencement of the 2019 season, which is of course the “International Year of the Salmon”.  We are acutely aware of the declining population numbers of salmon currently throughout the North Atlantic region but consider it important to maintain the interest in our river, our stocks of fish and the sport of fishing.  The anglers of the River Nith have embraced the concept of conservation and are still able to enjoy the pleasures of fishing whilst not exploiting the resource unsustainably.  We welcome all who fish the Nith including our younger anglers who are the future of angling on our river.

Dumfries and Galloway Angling Association have kindly offered all who attend the opening event may fish the Carnsalloch beat, free of charge, for that day, Monday 25th February, following the Opening Ceremony.

Please note that whilst all are welcome, it is essential that you confirm your intention to attend (RSVP).  This will enable us to cater for the appropriate number of people and enable us to comply with law in relation to permission to fish.
