BERWICK & DISTRICT ANGLING ASSOCIATION
FISHING THE RIVER WHITEADDER
The Berwick & District Angling Association controls several miles of the river Whiteadder with some prime Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout fishing.
The Association water starts just above Allanton Bridge near Chirnside in Berwickshire and runs over limestone ridges, through meadows and wooded valleys before meeting the Tweed about half a mile above Berwick upon Tweed. The river has many fast streams and deep holes holding the bigger fish.
The Whiteadder’s spring run of salmon has improved greatly over the past few years with the removal of the estuary, coastal nets and many of the river obstructions.
After the spring run of salmon in February and March the fish continue to move into the river and from the end of May there is some fantastic sea trout fishing at night.
The traditional main run of salmon is at the end of the season with the bigger slow moving fish entering the river from September onwards. This is where the lower beats on the river Whiteadder come into their own. When the river Tweed is un-fishable the Whiteadder is an excellent standby for lost days on the Tweed beats.
The Berwick & District Angling Association exists to promote the sport of angling on the river Whiteadder and we are always willing to help you make your visit a success.
