Over 100,000 rod/days to choose from!
Culter beat is directly upstream of the Maryculter Bridge and is over 1 mile offering a wide variety of pools to fish. The beat consists of 2 banks which ensures the water can be covered effectively irrespective of the wind direction.
In the spring with cold water, fresh run spring salmon will be found in the pools. In the summer there are opportunities to catch running salmon, grilse and sea trout with night fishing possible.
The beat has some super fly fishing pools including the very productive Peter's Pot, Greenbank, High Bank and Camphill.
Given suitable conditions the beat has the potential to produce salmon catches in the region of 200 per season.
With fishing from both banks and reasonable wading to cover the lies, the beat will suit the mobile fly fisher with access to the pools from both sides of the river.
In late summer the pools fill up dramatically with very large numbers of fresh fish which will spawn in the lower river later in the year.
The beat supports the River Dee conservation code and requests adherence to the code guidelines.
The beat promotes fly fishing at all times.
All fish caught, whether salmon or sea trout, must be handled with care and returned to the river.
