Salmon Fishing - Rivers Ettrick & Yarrow Scotland

O. S. Map 73

The River Ettrick flows for 15 miles to join the Tweed at Selkirk. The Ettrick is joined by the main tributary, the River Yarrow, one and a half miles upstream of Selkirk. Both rivers flows through magnificent wild moorland. The Tweed Foundation has done a good deal of work on habitat improvement on the Ettrick and Yarrow in recent years and the runs of salmon are improving, with around 100 salmon caught in a season, most of them in October.

These are spate rivers and sport with salmon is dependent on rain. Much of the fishing is owned and managed by Buccleuch Estates and salmon fishing is available on a season permit or day permit from Buccleuch Estates Ltd, The Estate Office, Bowhill, Selkirk. Selkirk Angling Club has the trout fishing on the river and offers day permits to visiting anglers.

Rivers Ettrick and Yarrow - Fishing Map

River Ettrick 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.
