To keep up to date with the latest information and pictures, like us on Facebook, we want to hear from you.

With the Rivers Allan, Forth, Carron and Devon on the doorstep, there's a wealth of great fishing to be found in the Stirling area.

The salmon fishing season on the Forth runs from 1 February-31 October. The trout season runs from 15 March-6 October. You can fish for both on Mondays to Saturdays in the season.

  • We manage the salmon fisheries in Stirling and Callander.
  • We provide a good quality and well managed public salmon fishery for the benefit of both residents and visitors.
  • We promote salmon conservation by issuing tags to anglers to limit the number of salmon that can be taken away while still providing a full season of fishing.
