Maps and Information on Sea Trout Rivers of Southern Scotland

The south west of Scotland has some of the best sea trout fishing rivers in the country. Rivers like the Border Esk, Nith and Annan have some of the most attractive beats for night fishing and can provide excellent sport with sea trout through the summer months, before the main runs of salmon appear in the autumn. Permits are available at reasonable cost on a wide variety of beats, on association waters, hotel beats and private estates, although it has to be said that the last few years has seen a worrying dip in the numbers of sea trout caught.

The map below shows the main sea trout rivers in southern Scotland. The famous River Tweed flows eastward to enter the North Sea at Berwick; the Nith, Annan and Esk southwards into the Solway Firth. Clicking on a green dot will take you to a page showing detailed maps of each sea trout river with additional information on the sea trout fishing available on the rivers in the south of Scotland.

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. See Ordnance Survey Maps.

For a comprehensive guide to fishing on the lochs and rivers of Scotland, I would recommend that you invest in a copy of Bruce Sandison's excellent book:
