The club offers more than 3 miles of river fishing on the river Girvan, from Old Dailly all the way downstream to Newton Kennedy bridge at Nobles boat yard in Girvan.
Many thanks to Dewars Coachworks for facilitating this camera's location and to The Ayrshire Rivers Trust for capitally funding its installation and to the Carrick Angling Club for their help in arranging its installation. The source of the River Girvan is Loch Girvan Eye, situated high in the Galloway Hills and only half a mile from the source of the River Stinchar. The Water of Girvan passes through Lochs Cornish, Skelloch and Bradan, Ayrshire's major water supply reservoir, before making a broad sweep north via Straiton and Kirkmichael and then south-west via Crosshill and Dailly to reach the sea at Girvan Harbour. The upper Girvan valley is heavily forested, while in its middle and lower reaches the river flows through mainly cattle and sheep farming land. The Girvan is very much a spate river, with only a small compensatory flow from Loch Bradan. Freshets are released from the dam with some regularity throughout the summer season. The forestation at the headwaters causes rainfall to run off very quickly with resultant flash floods.
