Default River Clyde in Glasgow

Looking for some info regarding fishing the Clyde in Glasgow. I have been told that Glasgow residents are allowed to fish the Clyde inside the city boundaries without requiring a permit. If this is the case what is the position if you catch a salmon or sea trout? Thanks.

Ian

Well im not sure of the legalities involved, but i used to work on the banks of the clyde, just opposite the SECC. Ive seen many salmon/sea trout jumping in this area of the river (particularly in the autum).

Ive also seen a fair few dead bodies! althoug if you hook one of them, you will no doubt be popular with the polis....

Hi Shanski

Dont quote me on this but I am pretty sure that with the River Clyde having a protection order on it for migratory fish then a valid permit is required right from the Firth of Clyde right up to Stoneybyres Power Station just below Lanark
PS

Dont forget about all the tributaries as well

Shanski, You will be ok fishing for any species other than salmon or sea trout, in Scotland there is a public right to fish for trout or other freshwater fish in waters which are tidal and navigable. The Protection Order on the Clyde does not cover the tidal section, but includes the main stem of the river from Daer Reservoir downstream to Bothwell Bridge.

You can fish the Clyde with 4lb or lower line and its ok.
I dont know what the situation is about the Salmon and Sea Trout
I have a permit and you need a different one for Salmon And seatrout
