Clubbiedean Trout Fishery in the Pentland Hills above Colinton opens for the season on Saturday with a fun day.

Boats are already booked out but there will be bank fishing available and there are prizes for the fastest fish, biggest bag and heaviest fish.

A BBQ will also be there it is good to see the popular fishery open as leaseholder Steven Johnston has been dogged by bad weather so far this season. The day starts at 9am.

Elsewhere, The River Forth Fisheries Trust open the Fair a Far weir fish pass on Saturday at 11.30am.

The event takes place on The Almond at the grassy area in front of the weir next to the mill buildings and the nearest post code is EH4 6HY.

Guest speakers will outline the work and the trust and Cramond Angling Club will have stalls to provide more information about the fish pass and fishing on the river.

The pass, incidentally, is part of RiverLife: Almond & Avon, a partnership project.

It is a combination between the River Forth Fisheries Trust, The City of Edinburgh Council and West Lothian Council.

And the project aims to improve the River Almond and Avon for the benefit of wildlife and the communities which border the rivers.
