    Default Re: River almond Lothian

    Actually i dont get that box at all.
    Im only on a mobile as i dont have a computer. Maybe thats why?
    Full disclosure
    I was looking to try and find simewhere where i was able to take the odd one for the pot, but after reading around it seems that the almond stocks are too precarious so ill knock that idea on the head! Im predominantly a catch and release angler anyway but old habits die hard. I grew up on the teifi so there was never strict c&r rules; ill get used to it im sure👍
    Thanks for all your help tho everyone.
    Ill join the cramond ac next season instead.
    Do you guys know what sort of numbers are caught and are there fish to be had all season?

    I'm using my phone look at the screenshots?

    The almond is a sewer highway for every village/town between Whitburn and Edinburgh it's a river I just wouldn't eat anything out of.

    The linhouse/muiriston water would be a better option for clean edible brown trout or even croswood reservoir.

    Yes it did. ME!

    By Gibbons jaw, I assume you mean the Linn Jaw, Linhouse water?
    Is adequate spawning areas below said natural waterfall, and indeed, only around 1.5 miles spawning areas above said waterfall.

    Just so you know, the access bridge from Spottiswoode entry into Calderwood, was constructed early 80's by knocking down original unsafe bridge, and replacing with current bridge, and at the time, salmon, and sea trout, were recorded making the ascent of the river on falls below bridge.
