About UsAboutUs

Alderneuk fishery is a quiet family owned fishery ran by dedicated anglers. Set within the beautiful dumfrieshire countryside a mere five minute drive from dumfries town centre. The loch is spring fed resulting in extremely clear water allowing the angler to stalk top quality trout.

Established in 2008 the loch has matured nicely, offering fish from around the 3lb mark up to the leviathans that will rip the rod from your hands at 8lbs plus. An average weight of 4lbs can be expected. It goes without saying that the main stock consists of fully finned grade A rainbow trout. To supplement these, blue, brown and tiger trout have also been stocked adding exciting variation to your catch.

As far as tactics are concerned be prepared to use every trick in the book to catch that wily trout. Whether you catch that rising trout on a small dry or daddy; twitch a string of wets past the nose of a cruising fish; drift a suspender buzzer or two on a slow retrieve; rip a lure by an unsuspected fish to catch its attention. They all work very well.

Help is always at hand when you need some tackle advice or need to land that first big fish. There is even complementary tea and coffe to warm the dedicated angler. Even if you have forgotten something and need some tackle, an assorted selection is available at very reasonable prices.

Come give us a try!
