things to do ... Fishing and Angling!
RIVER CREE (Newton Stewart Angling Association)
Enjoy the relative quiet of the local association water, which runs through the town and is a stones throw from the hotel. With over ten named pools stretching right down to the tidal water, you can find a quiet corner to fish with ease.
Season Dates: 1st March - 14th October
Best fishing: Spring April / May. Grilse run in July - Excellent.
September / October - back end fish can be dark.
Spinning and worm above markers. Fly only below.
Parking close by all pools.
Productive in both Spring and Autumn featuring some superb wild brown trout fishing between May and August. From mid February until the end of October you can take advantage of fishing on private water. Daily and weekly prices available.
Situated just off the River Bladnoch this recently restocked loch is a great alternative should any of the rivers be running a little low.
£25.00 per day including a two man boat.
LEARN TO FLY FISH
For those of you who would like to try your hand at fly fishing, the Creebridge House Hotel offers beginners packages ...
Half day (4 hours) £40.00 per person to include equipment, experienced local ghillie and a mid morning snack.
Full day (6 hours) £60.00 per person to include equipment, experienced local ghillie and packed lunch.
GALLOWAY ANGLING CENTRE
Situated in Newton Stewart, the Galloway Angling Centre provides a vast range of fishing equipment. From fishing reels to pen knives. We guarantee we will have something for everyone who loves the sport.
On site the hotel has a 16' rod box, freezers, tubing, scales, wader hanging racks and a drying room. Rod and tackle hire are also available locally. £8.00 per hour.
The only thing we can't organise is the weather and all our rivers in South West Scotland are spate rivers, which rise and fall with the rain. We can usually guarantee rain in the early part of the year, February, March and April but the back end is really in the lap of the Gods.
For more information please call 01671 402121 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to advise you on current conditions.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bonnie Galloway soon, in the meantime "tight lines".
