Strathmore Angling Improvement Association
SAIA was formed in 1948 to promote access for brown trout & grayling fly fishing on 11 miles of the rivers Isla, Dean & Kerbet in the Vale of Strathmore, but at prices affordable to all ages of local anglers.
The Association is wholly run by volunteers with all ticket sales monies used to improve the rivers by sympathetic stocking , river & bank management/ improvements all of which assist the wild fish stocks and make the river fishing accessible to anglers.
Strathmore Angling Improvement Association strongly recommend that All anglers should be insured and are reminded that they fish at their own risk.
It is also strongly recommended that all anglers wear a buoyancy aid for their own safety.
The Fish & Rivers
Each season at various river locations, SAIA stock between 300-500 fully grown locally reared brown trout and incubated eyed ova. These stocked fish supplement the already high levels of wild brown trout & grayling in the rivers. Each season wild trout & grayling in excess of 2lb are caught . A four fish day limit of 11" + trout is set ,but correct catch and release is actively promoted and practiced by most anglers. The Association also undertakes river management work parties in the closed season; any anglers wishing to attend these should contact an SAIA committee member.
