River Categorisation for 2018

With the fishing season well underway and the realistic prospect of a fish now, I thought it would be worth while reminding all anglers what the Scottish Government has categorised each Ayrshire river and what this means for the angler on the river. Ayr Category 3 (mandatory catch and release) Doon Category 1 Girvan Category 2 Garnock Category 2 Irvine Category 3 (mandatory catch and release) Stinchar Category 1 See the link to the Governements website if you are in any doubt; http://www.gov.scot/Resource/0053/00531117.pdf
