Fishing for wild brown trout, sea trout and salmon in the picturesque county of East Lothian

The Tyne is a natural fishery and is not artificially stocked – ELAA supports catch and release. Read the Rules and Regulations.

The East Lothian Tyne is a picturesque and secluded river of approximately 30 miles in length, rising in the Moorfoot hills and flowing eastwards into Belhaven Bay, by Dunbar.

The  East Lothian Angling Association lease and manage the majority of the river, from above Pencaitland down to the tide at Tyninghame.

The Tyne has a good stock of wild trout, and is now managed exclusively as a wild trout fishery. The Tyne gets a good run of sea trout from around May onwards, these fish are often sizeable, and provide a challenge to the angler.

The odd salmon may be encountered, given good water levels and time of year.
