Lamington and District Angling Improvement Association

Fishing Lamington & District Angling Association Controlled Waters

River information

The river is crystal clear on a gravel bottom; easily and safely wade-able running through open country the whole time. Whilst composed mainly of runs and glides there is no shortage of deep pools which may yield outstanding fish. In winter we fish for Grayling and the once much neglected fish is now providing good winter sport.

We do not permit competitions or organised club outings on our water and we operate a 12", 2 Trout limit and a 12", 2 Grayling limit but in order to protect our wonderful resource the Association strongly encourages catch and release.

Under the terms of our lease no Sunday fishing is permitted.

Bailiff's

We have a full time Bailiff who polices the water on a daily basis and is available to answer any queries members may have.

Fishing Map

The map below shows the upper and lower fishing limits for association water as well as access roads and parking, as we rely on the good will of our landlords we ask all members to please bear in mind the road space required by agricultural machinery when parking their vehicles and appreciate their consideration regarding this.
