Overview

Crathes Castle Fishing is a prime Spring beat offering anglers the chance to catch large multi sea winter spring salmon as they enter the river in the spring months. The beat stretches for 2 1/2 miles of the left bank, immediately below Banchory, in some of the most stunning scenery in the area.

All the pools are accessible by car. The fishing is home to one of the best luxury fishing huts on the River Dee allowing visitors to enjoy their visit to the river in comfort, taking full opportunity to take in its stunning riverside setting.

The hut benefits from electricity, a solid fuel stove, microwave, WC, and a barbecue which can be used by all guests throughout the day. Guests can relax inside or on the huts extensive decking area over looking the pools whilst they stop fishing for lunch.

The fishings are normally let for 4 rods and are divided into 2 beats each with 4 major pools. There is a maximum of 2 rods on each beat and the rods will change beats at 1.00pm.
