Fishing the River Don
The Don is a unique river. It has a reputable standing with the angling fraternity, not only for salmon and sea trout, but also as one of the finest wild brown trout rivers in Scotland, if not Europe.
Trout fishing is readily available on most beats throughout the season.
Anglers visit the Don from destinations throughout the UK and abroad, to cast a line for prime Don brown trout. For many, the Don in Scotland is a closely guarded secret.
Salmon enter the Don during most months of the year. At present large runs of grilse enter the river and provide excellent sport.
The month of May is when sea trout come off the tides giving good sport on the fly especially on the lower and lower middle river beats.
