Angling for All


River Nith potential platform site


Disabled anglers may now fish for salmon and sea trout on the Mid Nithsdale Angling Association's leased water on the River Nith at Thornhill, Dumfriesshire. Wheelchair access to fishing platforms at three sites along the three and a half miles of fishing are now open.

The custom-built fishing platforms are easy to access being only 30 minutes by car from Dumfries or 40 minutes from the M74. Anglers can now drive right up to the river bank on the new internal roads, through electronic gates and have use reserved disabled parking at any one of the three stations for a comfortable and straightforward visit.

Tuition may be available through the Scottish Anglers National Association. To book and for further information please contact Mrs Little, Pets Larder, 102 Drumlanrig Street, Thornhill, DG3 5LU, 01848 330555.
