RIVER ANNAN

HALLEATHS Fishings (Sea Trout Festival Beat in 1997 and 1998)





HALLEATHS House pool, across from the car park and fishing hut in the middle of the beat

The beat is the right bank looking downstream from just below the Kinnel confluence to just above the Lockerbie to Lochmaben road bridge. It benefits from the Dryfe confluence, with the Kinnel confluence just to the north. Wading is excellent in most parts, being small shingle, and would seem to fish best with about one and a half foot of a rise. Apart from salmon and sea trout it holds a good head of grayling and brown trout.

Location

The River Annan is in the South-West of Scotland. The mouth is at Annan, 15 miles East of Dumfries, on the Solway Firth. Halleaths is about 10 miles upstream, slightly to the west of Lockerbie and east of Lochmaben, just 5 minutes drive from the M74.

Access

Three car parks divide the water into two sections, allowing easy access on foot. The majority of the water is within a quarter of a mile of the car parks.



SAVING MAPS

The maps are both A4 size but constrained on the web page. If you right click on a map you should have the option of opening it in a new page and it will then be full size and/or you can save it to your computer and print it from there when it should be A4 size as intended
