The Fruin is a classic West Coast spate river and even after the heaviest rain will be fishable within hours of the water height peaking.
While other rivers in the west coast and Clyde valley are affected by spate conditions the River Fruin can offer sport for a couple of days that other rivers might be lost to poor conditions.
The river can essentially be split into 3 sections: Top section which will fish first after a spate. Middle section, probably the quietest section of river, you might struggle to see another angler here all day. Bottom section where the river widens, pools get deeper and access is reasonably easy.
In the event an angler is rained off or indeed the river is too low the permit will enable the you fishing on the River Leven or Clyde Estuary, guaranteeing sport no matter what conditions prevail.
