Dumfries and Galloway Angling Association recently took over the Drum fishery near Dalswinton. This is a 7 acre loch stocked with Rainbow Trout. Fish are stocked around the 2.5 - 3lb size but the loch also holds many grown on fish from previous years including Tiger and Brown trout. Rainbows up to 10lb have been caught.


The loch has undergone many improvements including the addition of a flushing W.C. a new sheltered seated area and picnic bench. The committee carry out a lot of maintenance on the Loch each year removing weed from the loch, repairing walkways and strimming. The committee give up vast amounts of their time to keep it looking as it is.

The main stock of browns are around 1lb, rainbows are around 2lb but we have kept it interesting with a few 4-5lb fish. The pond depth ranges from 3-5ft, best tactics are a floating line with ether a dry fly or due to the dark peaty water a bright wet fly.

The fishery is open all year from 7am until 30 minutes prior to dusk.  Tackle hire and bait available.


Jericho Loch is now run by the Jericho Fly Fishers Club and is stocked on a regular basis from 3lb - 6lb including rainbow, brook, blue, brown and tiger fish.  There is also a substantial amount of fish in the 10lb - 20lb range for the angler to catch.

We are a long standing clear water, spring fed lochan. We treasure our fish, which we stock from local sources and the weights range from 3llb upwards. we stock a percentage of Blue and Rainbow but we also have Browns, Brookes and Tigers. We pride ourselves on a beautiful , quality surrounding where quality not quantity of fish can be caught. Our fishery manager is usually on hand to help with any anglers questions or queries.

Our waters are clear, and run all year round, but with this advantage of clear water, our maintenance for keeping it clear of weed is continual. So every Monday and Tuesday are designated cutting days. We only cut sections making it fishable during maintenance, but this can also encourage a feeding pattern in our fish which helps any angler fishing those days.

We do have a professional angler, Sue McNiven who can come and help with expert tuition on the water and also our fishery manager Andrew can help with any problems.

Whether you are a beginner or an expert the two well stocked lochans at the Green Frog in Moffat offer an easily accessible location to enjoy fishing. 

We offer both fly fishing and bait fishing with barbless hooks and regardless if you are on your own or with a group of family and friends, there’s always acres of space and a warm welcome at the Green Frog.
