Trout Fishing in
Kirkcudbright, situated at the mouth of the River
Dee on the Solway Firth, is within easy reach of a number of lochs
to the north. Most hold trout and some offer excellent coarse
fishing. Some of the lochs are managed by the local angling club and
available by day permit.
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
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.
