Although all it is now possible to take salmon on the River Allan it is necessary for anglers and for the Association to demonstrate that enough fish are being returned to the system to maintain satisfactory juvenile recruitment. The Association has therefore adopted the Code of Practice recommended by the River Forth Fisheries Trust and the Forth District Salmon Fishery Board. We therefore recommend that only one salmon may be taken on any day with a season limit of two salmon. We also recommend that anglers seriously consider returning all salmon. If you don;t need it- you don't need to kill it.
