These lower Eden beats have the cream of the early Spring fishing and enjoys a very good summer run which is improving year on year. The fishery is situated just two miles from the Solway estuary. The river here is influenced by the tide – tideschart.com, a Solway tide book is recommended for planning optimum fishing times and for personal safety.

There is a good variety of water on the fishery. There are pools with good flow on both beats which are well suited to fly fishing, while the other slower and deeper sections are more effectively spun and bait fished.

Spring fish.

Beside fly fishing, spinning and (bait fishing after June 16th) is also permitted.

All salmon caught now have to be returned safely, for sea trout there is a limit of two per season although catch and release is very much encouraged now.

Summer fishing can be exceptional in low water with runs of very large fish early in June entering the river along with improving sea trout numbers.
