West Ord Beat

Man fishing on the river tweed outside South Bells fishing shiel

We have about a mile of single bank salmon and sea trout fishing in tidal water.

The water can all be waded, we don’t provide a boat or a ghillie, but will point you in the right direction, as far as boundaries etc are concerned.

The season is from 1st February to 30th November and there is no fishing on Sundays.

On or before 14th February and on or after 15th September it is fly only.

All salmon must be returned up to 30th June because of spring salmon conservation rules.

All anglers will be asked to complete a Gyrodactylus declaration before fishing.This states that either you have not used your fishing tackle abroad in the last three months, or you have done so and had it properly sterilised.If neither of the above then tackle must be sterilised before fishing begins.

All regulations can be found on the Fish Tweed web site

A charge of £10.00 a day will be charged for Salmon and Sea Trout fishing.

There is no charge if fishing for brown trout.

Payment will be taken at time of fishing.

We can store any fish caught in our deep freeze for guests.


Information regarding booking fishing on other beats on the Tweed and tributaries can be found on
