Fishery

Waterside & Ferrar has 6.4 kilometres (4 miles) of magnificent fly-fishing, from 14 named pools of double banked fishing on the River Dee. Double banked fishing is available to all fishers throughout the spring season.

The Spring fishing season starts on the 1st of March and runs until 3rd of July 2021. During the Spring 4 rods can fish the beat. The services of a shared ghillie are included from the 19th of April until the 3rd of July.

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

There are 5 fishing huts on the beat spread across both banks. Access to the beat is by car along tracks to most of the beat. 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.
