Welcome to the homepage of the Forth And Teith.
The River Teith is born in Callander Meadows at the confluence of Eas Gobhain , the outflow from Loch Vennachar, and the River Leny , itself a fine Spring river , originating
from Loch Luibnaig. The Teith is a true highland river and
considered to be the finest example of salmon and sea trout fly fishing rivers in Central Scotland. Its shallow and varied pools and fast running streams make it a dream to
fish. It has often been likened
to a miniature Dee and for its relative size,comfortably competes in a sporting sense with its bigger Aberdeenshire cousin at the height of the season.
The Teith joins the River Forth 2 miles north of Stirling , approximately 11/2 miles above the upper tidal limits at the Cruive Dykes .The Forth is typified by slower,
deeper but no less productive pools. The River Forth is a lowland river which rises on the slopes of Ben Lomond to the west and after a precipitous journey to Aberfoyle ,passing through Loch Ard on the way, it becomes much slower,
meandering lazily east to the sea, through the very productive Stirling Council Beat. The two rivers and their tributaries combined drain a total of 1025km2.
The River Teith has been designated an S.A.C.
(Special Area Of Conservation)
The F.T.M.G. is a submanagement group with reponsibilities delegated from the Forth District Salmon Fishing Board
and the River Forth Fisheries Trust.
