Atlantic Salmon and Seatrout

Salmon fishing on the River Tweed starts on 1st February and finishes on 30th November. The river is one of the most extended salmon fishing seasons in Scotland and the United Kingdom. 

The Tweed divides itself into four sections, Upper (Tweed to the mouth of the River Ettrick), Middle Tweed (downstream of the River Ettrick to the mouth of the River Teviot), Lower Tweed (downstream of the River Teviot to the mouth of the River Till) and Bottom (downstream of the River Till to the sea). Due to the width of the river the lower two sections of Tweed are frequently fished from a boat and most of the lower river fisheries provide Boatmen (Tweed ghillies are traditionally called Boatmen) to assist their guests. Good fishing can also be enjoyed on Tweed’s tributaries, the four principal ones of note are Rivers Ettrick, Teviot, Till and Whiteadder.

The Tweed is recognised by many as one of the great rivers for Atlantic Salmon and Seatrout. 

The Tweed Foundation would like to thank for their support.
