Redd survey

Our friends at the River Forth Fisheries Trust are asking all anglers wandering the banks of any rivers in the district to keep an eye out for redds (which is effectively the spawning nests formed by salmon & trout in suitable deposits of gravel in the river or the burns)

The Scottish Government’s Fisheries Research Service provide information and advice on spotting Redds here:

If you spot a red please report here:

Salmon Redds have already been seen in the river as captured by Ross Haldane in this picture:

The DAA intends to complete a full survey of the river and some it’s principal spawing burns in the newt weeks.
