Access rights to fish the river at Herdmanston Mains (FDSFB code TY27) have not been granted for the 2014 season and therefore this stretch of the river is not covered by the ELAA permit. During 2013 the riparian owner had a number of problems with cars blocking the farm road which has led to the removal of the fishing rights. Anglers are reminded to park responsibly when accessing all parts of the river.

The river through Nisbet and Herdmanston flows through attractive open pasture country. The river may be small and lacking in water in dry spells, but there are some sizeable trout to be caught with a careful approach. Upstream of Nisbet the bankside vegetation makes for tricky casting of a fly.

Wild fishery - no stocked brown trout - catch and release please

No Sunday fishing at Herdmanston
