It is sad but, If anyone finds rubbish Fly Tipped in car parking areas or in or near the river please report it directly to FIFE COUNCIL using the link to their reporting form on the ‘LINKS’ page of this web site. The council officers are usually quick to respond and may be able to trace the culprits.
Members can help in the work of the Association building and maintaining stiles, walkways, bridges and generally maintaining the river access for the benefit of all. Work parties are arranged throughout the year from the early season maintenance of paths to removing and clearing up trees from the river after storms, but we do need your help.
Please use the Form on the ‘CONTACT’ page with your contact details if you are able to provide some much needed help or encouragement. You don’t need to be super fit as there are plenty of lighter jobs to be done. Thanks.
As a result of requests made to the Tay Salmon Fisheries Board, (See Links page for meeting minutes) attempts were made to obtain Eden salmon as broodstock for rearing at the Almondbank hatchery. Unfortunately the attempt was then made too late in the season when river was too high to obtain salmon when the TDSFB had issues with hatchery capacity, but as lots of redds were found so it looks like spawning had already taken place which has to be good news.
