The Whiteadder, pronounced ‘Witt-adder‘runs through the heart of Ellemford's meadows and wooded valleys before meeting the river Tweed about a mile above Berwick. As a relatively small tributary of the Tweed it has a great heritage and a long season, offering sport most of the year. Along with the Tweed it has had record Salmon catches over the last three years.
It hosts fast streams and deep holes holding the big fish. After the spring run of salmon in February and March they continue to move into the river. From the end of May some fantastic sea trout night fishing can be had. Bigger slow moving fish enter the river from September onwards where the lower beats on the Whiteadder come into their own.
