Why not escape for a while and spend an hour or two fishing the finest small river in Central Scotland.
Within easy reach of Edinburgh and Glasgow (40 min), and Perth (30 mins) the Allan offers affordable brown trout, sea trout, and salmon fishing for all. The Allan Water Angling Improvement Association controls approximately 15 miles of mostly double bank fishing. The Association is committed to providing good quality affordable fishing for its members and visiting anglers who are always welcome and both daily and season permits are readily available.
The season opens on 15th March and closes on 6th October for trout and 31st October for salmon and sea trout.
2017 Season Now that the final catch returns are in it would appear that the Allan has fared better than other rivers in the system such as the Teith, Forth, and Carron who have all had a difficult season. The final Allan totals were 171 salmon and 81 sea trout. Although salmon were down on 2016 there was no shortage of fish and these were well spread throughout the river. Constantly fluctuating water levels however meant they never really settled and were at times more interested in getting upstream than they were in taking a fly. Sea trout numbers were better this year and that is encouraging.
