Rules

1. Angling on the River Devon is permitted only for members of the DAA who hold a current permit for either trout, trout and salmon or salmon alone fishing within the dates specified on the permit

Likewise, angling on Glenquey Reservoir is permitted only for persons, including members of the DAA, who have a current day permit to fish the water

Fishing on the River Devon is not permitted on Sundays. All legal methods of fishing for trout are acceptable using a single rod held in the hand at all times. The use of power baits, set lines, otterboards, nets etc. are not acceptable practices. Trout less than 10 inches (25cms) or tagged fish should be returned, the latter after a note has been taken of the tag colour/number and the size of fish

No more than four sizable fish should be taken per day. A record kept noting the date, number and size of the fish caught and kept (if any) should be sent to the Secretary at the end of the season to enable the Committee to assess future stocking requirements.

2. Angling on the Devon and its tributaries upstream from the Menstrie/Tillibody Bridge to the dam below Castlehill Reservoir is permitted with certain sections as follows excepted:

  • Great care should be taken when wading especially in low water conditions as in some parts the bottom is very soft
  • Please return tickets to the box with catches marked. There will be a monthly draw of returned tickets, resulting in a free day’s fishing for some lucky angler

Code of Practice – General

Members are expected to comply with The Country Code, and respect the privacy, property and interests of the riparian owners who kindly allow the DAA access through their land. Anglers should be considerate to other persons who live by or enjoy the river or loch side environments

While Bailiffs are employed by the DAA, it is in the members interest to courteously ascertain whether other anglers met on the DAA’s waters are indeed holders of a current permit

If a problem of pollution or major obstruction on the river is observed, please advise the Hon. Secretary and/or SEPA as soon as possible
