Salmon - Fishing - Dalswinton Estate

Dalswinton Estate, situated 7 miles north of Dumfries, has 2.5 miles of single bank fishing, stretching from the pump house at Auldgirth to the Railway viaduct at Portrack. It is a particularly attractive stretch of the river. Later on in the Autumn, the river is notorious for its runs of the famous grey-backs and salmon are landed regularly. In 2011 Dalswinton recorded a 34lb Salmon caught on the fly and returned.(See Pictures below)

Grayling are abundant and reach nearly world record sizes.They are best fished for between November and March on a crisp frosty morning.
Sea trout arrive in April and hit their peak in May and June but can be caught until the end of the season.

Salmon and grilse run throughout the season but the beat is at its best from mid-August until the end of October.
