Fishing in Clackmannanshire

Fishing at Gartmorn Dam
Fishing at Gartmorn Dam

Whether you're an experienced angler or someone who's new to fishing, Clackmannanshire has it all.

You should always make sure you or someone you are with knows what they are doing before you start fishing. There are some basic regulations to follow, and many of them are there for your own safety. Always wear a properly fitted lifejacket when out on the water and do not stand up or move about on the boat.

Remember too that it is illegal to fish for salmon or sea trout on a Sunday. You should also check if a permit is necessary before you start to fish.
