Deecastle

Fishery

Deecastle beat has 5.2 kilometres (3.2 miles) of magnificent fishing, from 22 named pools on the south side of the Dee.

There is a bank and ghillie-sharing agreement with the opposite Dinnet beat that allows fishers to enjoy double banked fishing during the Spring season.

The Spring fishing season starts on the 1st of March and runs until the 3rd of July 2021. During the Spring 6 rods can fish the beat except for the month of March when only 4 rods can fish. The services of a shared ghillie are included from the 1st - 27th of March, after which the beat benefits from the services of two ghillies from the 29th of March until the 3rd of July.

During the Summer fishing season, Deecastle beat operates single banked fishing only. The Summer fishing season starts on the 5th July and runs until the 30th September 2021. During the Summer 2 rods can fish Deecastle beat. The beat is offered for let to fishers during the Summer fishing season without the services of a ghillie.

There are 2 fishing huts and shelters on the beat, with more on the Dinnet side. Access to the beat is by car along tracks to most of the beat. However, there are also paths along the riverside on both banks that allows access to all parts of the beat on foot.

The beat is fly fishing only and has a complete catch and release policy as recommended by the Dee Conservation Code, which is supported by the Dee District Salmon Fishery Board and the Dee Salmon Fishing Improvement Association. Full catch statistics for the beat can be found online through FishDee.
