Middle Drum

Fishery

Middle Drum is a Lower Dee beat situated between Peterculter and Drumoak offering approximately 1 mile of fishing from the left bank where there is very little wading required.

As the beat is mainly fished from the bank it is an ideal beat for novice and elderly fishers alike.

Middle Drum is a beat that can produce early season sport for spring salmon, good grilse and salmon sport in the summer and autumn. With lifts of water levels, evening sea trout fishing can be good.

The beat, which is opposite Tilbouries, has a very comfortable bothy with heating and catering facilities for teas and coffees as well as a toilet. There is seating provided outside and there are some benches on the beat.

The full time experienced ghillie is Shane Christie who knows the beat intimately and he uses his wealth of knowledge to help his anglers get in about the salmon.

There is a super lower pool on the beat called the Lawson which is approximately 750 metres long. The fish lie close into the Middle Drum bank and are easily covered with a short cast. This pool is fished from the bank with comfortable walkways and mown grass areas down the length of it.

The main upper pool is called Cairnton and is again a good pool at the neck and tail for salmon and sea trout.

Fishing at Middle Drum is predominately by fly but spinning is permitted in the spring.
