Welcome to FishClyde, we will hopefully guide you to any information you will need to fish the River Clyde Scotland.
FishClyde do not own, control, or sell any tickets for the fishing on the river.
We are here to provide links and information in order for you to fish the river.
Below you will find the Clubs & Associations that control the fishing on the river & who to contact for permits to fish the river
Atlantic Salmon, Sea Trout, Brown Trout, Grayling, Pike & other coarse species.
Permits must be purchased prior to fishing the river or its tributary's
Permits cannot be purchased on the river.
River bailiffs & river wardens will be on patrol
There is no ‘official’ start & end of the Grayling fishing season in Scotland as the fish is not a native species to our rivers North of the border with England but some clubs / associations put in a ‘rule’ asking anglers not to target the species at certain times of the year.
On the River Clyde the Grayling season is from October 6th to March 14th the following year.
Lamington controlled water, their Grayling season is from the 7th October until the end of January.
Anglers on the Clyde tend to target the Grayling either by fly fishing using a team of Nymphs fished at various depths or bait fishing using the ‘trotting’ method with a nice handmade float and a couple of maggots or a small brandling worm ‘trotted’ down stream into the path of a feeding Grayling.
In the Autumn/Winter months, as it gets colder & the frost appears on the ground the Grayling fishing becomes slightly easier as the fish start to shoal up together so by a general rule, if you find 1 Grayling you will find more.
The bigger fish that are spread out all over the river after spawning, come together again along with the smaller fish to make up shoals and can provide the wandering angler with some great sport all day long when they bump into these shoals but the key is to find them 1st.
I hope you all have a great season ahead and please, share your pictures with us, either from the River Clyde or from any other venue across the globe.
