The Allan Water Angling Improvement Association controls approximately 15 miles of mostly double bank fishing.
Within easy reach of Edinburgh and Glasgow (40 min), and Perth (30 mins) the Allan offers affordable brown trout, sea trout, and salmon fishing for all. The Association is committed to providing good quality affordable fishing for its members and visiting anglers who are always welcome and both daily and season permits are readily available. The season opens on 15th March and closes on 6th October for brown trout and 31st October for salmon and sea trout.
For angling purposes the river can best be considered in three parts. The more sedate waters between Greenloaning and Ashfield, the much more broken water from that point downstream to Dunblane, and the section through Bridge of Allan to the tidal waters. There is a wide variety of fishing available from the long slow pools of the upper river for the dry fly fisherman to the faster streams of the lower river for the wet fly exponent. The Association offers around 15 miles of brown trout, sea trout, and salmon fishing much of which is double bank fishing.
Season permits can be purchased online through the Association website and day tickets can be purchased online through Fishing Around the Forth.
