Thank you everyone who has taken the time to submit their catch returns; this has improved this year. However we need more people to submit their catch returns so that we get a better idea of how many fish are actually being caught.
The Avon is currently in Category Three because of low catch returns and the only way to move up a category is by providing more returns.

Slamannan A.C. Club was started by a small group of local anglers in 1933 and has been in existence from then throughout the war years. They have fished the upper reaches of the River Avon. Industries such as paper mills and open cast mining have taken their toll on the river and its wildlife.
In 1976, the Avon was dug out and canalised. Gravel beds were removed, boulders taken out, bends were filled in and the river course was straightened out. Pools were none-existent. This almost destroyed the habitat for fish, birds, invertebrate, water voles and otters.
