The Eden Angling Association is a non profit making organisation, open to all. We
provide fishing for salmon, seatrout and brown trout on the River Eden in Fife. Our
aim is to provide the best environment we can and promote the conservation of the
river and it’s wildlife.

Latest news update.
The good news is that it appears that from 2017 the Eden will be classed as a category
2 river. This will mean that we will be, once again, able to take salmon from the
Eden. This will be mitigated by the fact that there will have to be a conservation
plan in place. This is already being undertaken by the Tay board. Over the last few
weeks they have been conducting surveys on juvenile salmon in various areas of the
river. Our thanks go to the committee members who have assisted in the survey. One
serious problem that was highlighted by the survey is that there are American signal
crayfish in one of the feeder burns that runs into the Eden upstream from Crawford
Priory. The Tay board will monitor the situation. The previous idea of installing
a fish counter on the Eden seems to have faltered. At the last Tay board meeting
it was intimated to the secretary that Marine Scotland were not in favour of installing
the counter, probably due to cost.
No matter what the outcome of the conservation plan and the regrading of the River,
it is still up to every angler to show restraint. Please return all salmon that are
undamaged and let them go on to breed.
This season looks like a repeat of last year. We desperately need some rain to bring
the salmon and sea trout into the River system. Some salmon have been spotted in
the lower reaches but without water they will be reluctant to travel or take anything.
