The Kemnay Angling Club beat is located in the middle section of the River nestled between the infamous beats of Monymusk and Fetternear Estates. It consists of 11/4 miles of South bank fishing and a short section of North bank fishing. The beat runs upstream from the road bridge at Kemnay adjacent to Fetternear Estate as far as the Ton Burn and its march with the Monymusk beat, a few miles from the village of Monymusk. The club has approximately 30 members and is fished relatively lightly compared to its neighbouring beats.
There is tremendous variety of water in this beat, ranging from wide, fast flowing rapids
to deep, slow pools and most variations in between. The beat holds a good number of salmon throughout the season due to the various deep pools, fast rushes and shallow spawning gravels present. It also does very well for sea trout from June onwards. Wild brown trout are abundant in this part of the river with some large specimen trout of 5lb+ not uncommon. The water is easily fished by wading or fished from the bank in higher water conditions. The vegetation is kept well under control on the Kemnay beat which makes for easy casting and access throughout the beat.
There are 13 named salmon pools spread across the beat with Boatleys and the Bridge Pool being a great choice for spring salmon. With the Coffee Pot, Milton Rush and the Willows standing out as must try pools for salmon and sea trout from late spring onwards. The middle section of the beat is traditionally where the most success is had when fishing for wild brown trout, but as you will find they can be picked up across the entire beat. Standard flies for the Don work well here.
Don District Fishery Board and River Don Brown Trout Improvement Association Conservation Codes must be adhered to at all times.
Parking is available at the top and bottom of the beats and good access is provided throughout with several recently refurbished styles crossing livestock fencing.
