Whether you love salmon or trout fishing Newcastleton is a perfect destination.

Fishing on the Liddel Water

Situated within easy distance of the Border Esk and the Liddel Water, Newcastleton and the langholm beat has a range of options for the keen angler.

The salmon season runs from the 1st of April to the 31st of October and sea trout up to September 30th.

The best fishing can be found after June where, with good water levels, fish start to run into beats such as Canonbie and the Lower Liddel.

Good size catches can be made with salmon and sea trout bagged at over 10lbs over each season.

Both rivers flow through some magnificent scenery and with the village of Newcastleton or Copshaw Holm, as it's known locally, offering a warm welcome with places to eat, stay and shop this is a fishing destination to remember. See individual accommodation providers for details of their fishing offers.
