Fishing in the River Nith at Drumlanrig

Angler's Acheivements

With a plethora of well-stocked Lochs and Rivers on the Estate,  a record of high quality catches have been reported ahead of the up and coming fishing season.

One of our local anglers and regular Season Ticket holders at Drumlanrig reported a very successful year of fishing on our river beats in 2023. His impressive catches led him to being featured in the Trout & Salmon Magazine.


A first-time catch, Bill managed to catch his first ever Grilse back in July 2023, fishing on the Boatford Beat here on the Queensberry Estate.


Some more of his impressive catches during last years season involved multiple Grayling, including a 3lb plus catch! Grayling abound in the winter months.
