Salmon Fishing - River Add  Scotland

O. S. Map 55

In the nineteenth century, catches of 1000 salmon a season were reported from the River Add. By the mid twentieth century, this had been reduced to around 200 salmon a year. Today a good year would see the catch reach double figures.

A combination of modern adversities - water abstraction for hydro power, excessive afforestation and more recently, off-shore salmon farming - has combined to further reduce the fishing potential of the Add, to the extent that a normal year might see a meagre ten salmon caught on this once prolific river. The river is fished on three beats - Minard, Kirnan and Poltalloch - and the fishing is best in July and August.

River Add Map

The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. Please note that these maps may date back several decades. Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have always been.

In addition to the information provided here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale 1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the relevant O.S. Map number.
