Esk and Liddle Fisheries

Esk and Liddle Fisheries Esk and Liddle Fisheries

Buccleuch Sporting Limited manage some 20 miles of the best seatrout fishing in the South of Scotland.

The Border Esk & River Liddle are well known for their run of sea trout, and for the salmon run during the second half of the season. The beats on the Esk form much of the middle section of the system whilst on the Liddle the two beats are in the middle and lower sections.

Both the Esk and Liddle flow through picturesque countryside typical of the Border area and much of the bankside is wooded with indigenous hardwoods. The rivers are generally fast flowing and with beds of rock outcrop or pebble shingle with no natural weed growth. The Esk may be regarded as “gin clear” except during periods of high water. The Liddle, except during periods of fairly low levels, often carries peat stain, although this does not have a detrimental effect upon fish taking.

Permit Beats There are 2 on the Liddle and 2 on the Esk, all beats provide excellent opportunities for Salmon and Sea-Trout, with the Newcastleton beat and Langholm beats proving more productive later in the season when runs of salmon make their way into the upper reaches. The Canonbie beat is popular with both local and visiting anglers and has some good holding pools, long runs and is good for night fishing.
