The South Esk

Sea Trout Fishing on the South Esk

The South Esk, like the North Esk, can give excellent sport with salmon, although it is perhaps better known for its sea trout. It is a longer river than the North Esk, offering more in the way of publicly accessible fishing. The best months for salmon, given rain, are August, September and October with June and July producing the bulk of the sea trout.

Sea Trout Fishing on the South Esk

The upper part of the South Esk down to the foot of Glen Clova can provide excellent sport given good water. Here the Kirriemuir Angling Club issue visitors permits for seven miles of the river upstream of Cortachy. The river swells in size on being joined by the Prosen Water, near Cortachy, below which lie some excellent rocky holding pools on the productive sea trout beats of Inshewan and Finavon and the more gentle, gravelly runs and pools down past Tannadice and Brechin to the lower river beats at Kinnaird and Bridge of Dun, just above the Montrose basin.
