Salmon fishing 1st February to 30th November.
The Berwick & District Angling Association have six named beats on the lower Whiteadder. Conservation is of the utmost importance to the Association and as such we have a number of measures in force. Fishing on all beats is by fly only and no other form of fishing is allowed. Permission to fish is given subject to the rules of the Association, Beat Maps and the terms of the current Tweed Angling Code.
Up to the end of June all fish have to be returned (end of March for Sea Trout). Although Berwick & District AA encourage the return of all fish throughout the year, season ticket holders are allowed to kill one salmon per week Monday to Saturday, after the end of June (one Sea Trout per session after end of March).
After killing one fish they may change tackle and continue fishing for migratory fish catch & release with barbless hooks for the remainder of the week. Day ticket holders may continue fishing catch and release with barbless hooks after killing their first fish.
Both season and day permits are available and salmon permits also carry the right to fish for brown trout. Concessionary tickets (OAP) are available and we allow a parent and child shared ticket subject to conditions. Salmon anglers have NO priority over trout anglers. It is a criminal offence to fish without written permission in the form of a permit and our watchers and Tweed Bailiffs check tickets on a daily basis.
All fish caught must be reported to the Secretary within one week on Tel 01289 306985 or in writing (address on permit) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
