Bladnoch -Tarf, Airyligg

The Tarf Water is definitely a spate river and really does need a good rise of water to fish well. The river is limited in width here but flows and cascades through beautiful countryside and can hold very good numbers of fish from July onwards depending on rainfall. Grilse, salmon and brown trout are caught on this beat. The water is fly only.

This beat is three miles long and contains 13 named pools (see map) and additional good fly water lies between these pools. Some of these pools, such as Madges Pool and Straights are great holding pools offering good opportunities of fish. This beat is suited to the angler who wishes to hunt for their fish. Some of the pools are easily accessible and bankside vegetation low but some areas will need a braver angler (in particular who is prepared to wade if necessary).

September and October are particularly productive months for salmon on the whole River Bladnoch system. Salmon up to 12.5lb have been caught from this water and wild brown trout up to 4.5lb. Ample car parking is provided for anglers close to the river and toilet facilities are available 2 miles away at the nearby Three Lochs Holiday Park.
