Fishing in Midlothian

*Please note the fishing season operates from April 2019. Fishing is prohibited from 30th September – 1st April.*

Here at Dalkeith, you can enjoy a fabulous day’s fishing just a stone’s throw from the centre of Edinburgh, where you will find brown trout and grayling.

The fishing season operates from 1st April to 30th September. Season Fishing Permits are available to buy from the Fort Douglas ticket cabin for £30. This entitles you to fish on the Rivers’ North and South Esk within the boundaries of the Park. Please note only fly fishing is allowed and all fish must be returned to the river.
