Fishing on the River Isla

This picturesque stream rises in Glen Isla and these upper reaches have a good population of brown trout that are moderately sized and usually free taking. This is an excellent place for the beginner to start river fishing. In the valley of Strathmore, the Isla settles down to a series of lovely pools and runs and becomes an excellent trout and grayling river. Below the Ericht the Isla acts as a corridor for salmon and grilse that are heading there. Trout and grayling are present everywhere. Its tributaries the Dean, Kerbet and Melgum are nice, small trout rivers.
