The catches record up to 2013 will incorporate Downie Park Beat. From 2014 season, any catches refer to Cortachy only.

The beat is approximately 2 miles in total of double-bank fishing with 2 huts.
3 rods are available each day

Prices from £30 to £50 per rod per day.

Fishing
If booking one day fishing then rods can fish from 9am until 9pm that night.
If booking more than one day then they can fish through the night but their let ends at 23.59 on the last day of fishing.

The Cortachy Castle beat extends over 2 miles of double-bank water for 3 rods.

The beat comprises Riverwalk, Castle and Meetings beat and comprises 24 named pools including the well renowned Sawmill Dam and the Meetings. Water fishes best in mid to lower water conditions and there is a mix of well defined pools and streamy flows.

Parties should realise that unless they take all of the water then other rods may fish at the same time.

Fishing is by fly only.

Please note that the Pylons, Castle Stream and Willows pools are only available after August.

Conservation Measures.
In keeping with the Esk District Salmon Fishery Board recommendations, please note the following:

Please note that for the period 16th February - 15 June ALL salmon, sea trout, and grilse are to be returned.

If absolutely necessary, then the practice of killing the second fish and fourth fish etc, should be adopted between the 16 June to 30 June for salmon, and throughout the season for seatrout.
This decision has been made by the Esk District Salmon Fishery Board in an effort to conserve spring salmon stock. During this period, if a badly hooked or bleeding fish cannot be returned, it will remain the property of the estate, and must be handed in to the Estate Office.
