Fishing the Scottish Borders

Fishing The Scottish Borders

There is a wide and varied choice of some excellent salmon and trout fishing in the Borders with the River Tweed being renowned worlwide for its salmon fishing particularly in the autumn when there is usually a prolific run of large salmon. The salmon fishing season on the Tweed is one of the longest in Scotland, running from the 1st of February right through until the 30th of November.

There is also some superb brown trout fishing to be found on the Tweed and it's tributaries such as the Whiteadder, Ettrick, Leader and the Teviot. As with most regions in Scotland, the Borders has a rugged and spectacular coastline with sea fishing in Eyemouth, St Abbs, and Burnmouth.

Listed below are just some of the fishing that can be found in the Scottish Borders.
They are mainly day ticket, stillwater lochs with brown trout and rainbow trout fishing.
