The Crown Estate Salmon Lease

THE CROWN ESTATE

SALMON LEASE

 

The United Clyde Angling Protective Association Limited, after many years of negotiations was granted the Salmon Fishing Rights, by The Crown Estate Commissioners on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, in exercise of the powers of The Crown Estate Act 1961, ALL and WHOLE the right, title and interest of Her Majesty in and to the rod fishings for Salmon and fish of the Salmon kind.

 

 

The Association therefore in exercise of the rights afforded to them have declared that the “Salmon Fishery” be confined to the MAIN STEM of the River Clyde flowing between Stonebyres Falls and Bothwell Bridge.

 

 

The waters which lie within the property boundary of Scottish Power at Stonebyres Power Station, upstream of the access road bridge, are excluded due to this being an active power  station, and the waters flowing between Motherwell Bridge and Bothwell Bridge, which falls within the boundary of Strathclyde Country Park are also excluded.

 

 

Historically, prior to the Industrial Revolution which sadly resulted in the very serious pollution of the lower part of the River Clyde, Stonebyres Falls was a natural barrier to migratory fish. No Salmon or Sea Trout were present in the Upper Reaches above Stonebyres Falls.

 

 

Anglers who purchase a “Salmon Permit” for this part of the fishery are required to purchase a further permit should they wish to fish for Brown Trout in the other parts of the river managed by the Association,
