Girvan – Girvan Mains Fishing Club

Girvan Mains Fishing Club is based on the lower stretches of the River Girvan, encompassing some of the best pools the Girvan has to offer.

Being the 1st stretch of river from the sea, we see a good run of fish every month of the year and also have the first crack at them, for the past 3 years in a row the biggest Salmon has been landed by a Girvan Mains FC member.

Taking into account the weirs, Millars Pool, Cochranes Point, GreyStaines, Dunrannie, the tanks, to name but a few, over a mile of single bank fishing, which is open to worm, spin and fly fish, conditions permitting, we have at present one hut with another due to get built soon, benches are located at various beats with more to be added in the coming months for your convenience.

A lot of work has been carried out the past 2 seasons to open up more areas and make them fishable, with still more to be done, but as with everywhere it is a continuous work in progress that I’m sure all members old and new will continue to assist to ensure we continue to have the best fishing we can, we are extremely proud of out little club and the water we have and we hope you can join us in enjoying some of the best and underrated fishing in Ayrshire.

Under the recent Scottish Government consultation, The Girvan is a category 3 river, where anglers are required by law to return all salmon caught.
