Where To Fish
The AAC has 14 miles of superb water which is full of glides, runs and deep pools, over rolling farmland to steep, wooded gorges. You want it we've got it!
For trout and Grayling our beat starts at Browns Bridge from the pools looking downstream and ends when it meets the Clyde in Hamilton. We have fishing for half a mile on the left hand side bank looking upstream from Brown Bridge too. There are some minor exceptions to this which can be found on your permit.
The river contains a good head of brown trout in a good range of sizes. Fish over 1 lb are not uncommon and whilst the size limit is 10", members are requested to release all brown trout and grayling under 12" and in particular, to release all wild brown trout - non stocked fish. This will help the aid of conservation of natural stock and to permit an increase in the overall average weight of fish in the system.
The AAC stock the river twice yearly with farm reared brown trout in various sizes ranging from 3/4lb to well over 1lb+. Its tributaries are also stocked with small brown trout reared from eyed ova in our own hatchery, in accordance with river catchment management requirements. Grayling are also present, particularly in the lower reaches of the river, and sea trout are known to navigate their way to the upper reaches.
Anyone with a permit has excellent fishing possibilities, superb scenery and the chance to see a wide variety of wildlife which could include kingfishers, herons, woodpeckers, otters and unfortunately the odd mink!
