West Lothian Angling Association was Established in 2011, the aim of the association is to provide, promote and protect angling opportunities within the West Lothian area. Currently we provide fishing for Salmon & Brown Trout on approximately 9 miles (double/single bank) of the River Almond between Kirkton Weir and the Clifton Hall. Our water are split into two beats, beat 1 is all species excluding Salmon and beat 2 is all species including Salmon. No Salmon fishing is available on Day Tickets. Members are permitted to fish using Fly, Spin or Bait techniques within the rules & regulations outlined here.
As a member of the Scottish Federation for Coarse Angling all WLAA members can fish the Forth, Clyde and Union Canals which make up the Lowland Canal Network.
