For the past 7 years the River Annan has been using anglers to monitor the status of the grayling stocks on the river. This is has created an important data set that can inform fishery management on the river. To help it is simple, just turn up on one of the dates below with either a fly rod or a float rod and go and fish on one of the fisheries we allocate you
We meet in the Café 91, which can be found on 91-93 High Street, Lockerbie, DG11 2DA at 8:00am, have a chat and a cup of coffee and then it is off to the river. We then meet again at the Town Head Hotel which is on Townhead Street at the north of Lockerbie, to hand in catch returns. For people staying overnight the Townhead Hotel is offering a special grayling day rate of £70 for a twin room (Bed & Breakfast) and a single for £45 (Bed & Breakfast). Please inform the hotel that you are attending a grayling day when booking. All we ask for is for the length of every fish (whatever species) to be recorded and if people have accurate scales for the weight to be recorded. We also ask all participants to make a £10 donation to the River Annan Trust.
This year’s dates are as follows:
Sat Dec 13th; Sun Jan 11th; Sun Jan 25th; Sat Feb 7th; Sun Mar 1st; and Sun Mar 22nd.
