*NOTICE* FISHERY UPDATE 16/07/2018 - Fishery closed Monday & Tuesday. Good morning & some good news! The fishery will be open as normal from this Wednesday, the 18th. Hours of fishing remain 9am - 10:30pm. Thanks! *Iona @ The Tarn*

 The Fishery is currently closed.  13/07/2018

*NOTICE*.. DUE TO WATER TEMPS, FISHING SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!.. The Fishery is currently closed. The waters are finally cooling down however not enough to re open yet. The PH is good, the waters clarity is fairly good, no fish loss, however fishing remains suspended for a few more days. Better for the fish & better for the fishing once we get back to normal. Thanks! I'll re access each day and report back!.. Thanks! *Iona @ The Tarn*


*NOTICE*.. FISHERY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!.. Hi all. The Fishery will be closed at least until this Friday the 13th, when we will re assess if the water temperature has dropped sufficiently to re open up as normal. We haven't lost much of our water level due to being spring fed & the PH is superb despite the exceptionally hot weather. However the water clarity improving the past week, has lead to the surface temperature slowly rising again, so I've taken the decision to close the fishery for a couple of days, so I can at least make as much noise as I want with strimmer & hedge cutter for the next couple of days without disturbing anyone's fishing! lol.. I'll re access Thursday night & report back!.. Thanks! *Iona @ The Tarn*

Our hours of fishing are:
Everyday 9am - 10:30pm.
Except Tuesdays as we are closed!..



Good morning folks, so much for the forecast!.. lol. The Bait pool has entirely iced over this morning, but fingers crossed we will be open for tomorrow as normal as temperatures are meant to rise. The Tarn, the Fly side, is largely iced over. However there are several pegs completely ice free at the moment & a few more areas should be cleared as the morning warms. Thankfully it's not too thick, so again, fingers crossed, we should be totally ice free for fishing tomorrow. If in doubt, call us ahead on (01506) 873073.
The access road to the fishery from the West Calder side 9 1st right at bottom of the Cleugh Brae after the railway bridge), is OPEN to access to the fishery. The road is closed after the junction for the fishery, so ignore the work signs at the road end as they are misleading. Thanks!

The Tarn is closed off tomorrow, Sunday the 5th of November, as we are privileged to be hosting The SANA Bank National final 2017/18, that will finish with deciding the Team who will go on to represent Bonnie Scotland in the 4 Nations Bank National next year!..

The Bait Pool is open as normal until 4:30pm!..

Tight lines to all the qualifiers in tomorrows event & safe travels to everyone, as I know many of you will be coming some distance to fish this event!.. The gates will be open at 7am tomorrow for you.
