The Braid is a medium sized tributary (5-20m wide) of the Maine, containing a large head of wild brown trout. 

These are best fished for during April and May and in the evenings during June and July using both dry and wet fly. 

Salmon and dollaghen fishing is usually at its best in September and October after a spate.

As well as the fly, worming and shrimping are permitted as is spinning from the 1st August.
