2 Miles fishing on the Nith and 1.5 miles on the Cairn (all double bank).
The Dumfries Burgh Common Good Fishings run through the town from the estuary to about 3/4 mile above the town centre together with 2 miles on the lower Cairn. The beat has a mixture of pools suitable for fly, spinning or worming.
A major advantage is that much of the water —for example the Cakewalk and the Millgreen— is easily accessed from public footpaths or walkways. In fact these areas can be extremely productive for worming or spinning in medium to high water conditions in the Autumn.
