Coarse fishing in Nithsdale

This small corner of Scotland boasts some of the best coarse fishing in Scotland coming from the river or its surrounding still waters.

The bream, roach, tench and pike fishing in the lochs around the area is outstanding with some of the fishing free and the rest on very affordable day tickets. In addition there is a number of still waters around Dunfries and Thornhill that are fishable on a day ticket basis.
