    Some shockers in there.But I would ask.how can they give proposals for 2019 when many rivers have not closed yet and will not have provided catch returns.??

    Jim, after all these years do you still believe they use anything resembling science? It has been obvious for years now the river names are written on pieces of paper, the drawn from a hat and dropped into the categorisation buckets. The Lochy for example has failed to catch over 100 fish in the last 2 years average 220ish and it stays as Cat 2.

    To be fair I don't think this years catches are actually included, not that it affects what I have written above.


    Salmon Conservation Regulations Appears to have more districts, the Kyle of Durness does not appear in the original link.

    Could it be the 2018 catch numbers are not used for 2019 ratings, but will be for 2020 ratings. Just as 2019 catch numbers will not be used for 2020 ratings, but will be for 2021.
    Just saying, like!

    It would be good if they explained how they arrived at the figures. Not too much to ask. After all it's us anglers that are catching the salmon

    That information is available, to all anglers.

    Conservation Status

    Indeed, why dont you register your interest with the department, and they will keep you up to speed.

    Is also open for comments on current proposals.

    It would be interesting to see all that data in map form. NE seems to be healthier; I've been told the electro fishing this year confirmed the density of parr is pretty healthy in these rivers.

    Well it's not all bad news, more rivers have had regulations relaxed than have had them tightened although that isn't much consolation if you are on one of the downgraded ones.
    So maybe there has been a bit of listening to local fishery managers at last, not enough to be sure but hey ho what did we expect.

    I note that there are 3 rivers named in the 'Fyne' area. Does anyone know if this means that any other rivers that discharge into Loch Fyne are not covered at all by this legislation?
    Many thanks
