The huge selection of rivers, streams, lochs and coast around Dumfries & Galloway make fishing here an absolute delight, and the River Nith, which runs right past Woodland House Hotel, is one of Scotland’s most productive rivers for both salmon and sea trout.
The Nith offers excellent sport for anglers of all abilities, from beginners to the more experienced, and the character of the river varies from wooded gorges in the upper river through to quick moving pools and rich fertile land nearer the estuary. Other nearby rivers include the Ae, the Annan and the Dee and you can expect to catch pike, eel, trout, salmon, perch, carp, rudd and tench. There are also plenty of well stocked lochs worth exploring including Glenkiln Reservoir, Jericho Lochs and Castle Loch at Lochmaben.
If you want to make the most of your prized catch you can even drop it off at a local smokehouse to have it smoked, hand sliced and delivered direct to your door. Contact us if you’d like more information on fishing breaks at Woodland House Hotel.
