Stracathro

Fishery

The beat starts at the confluence of the North Esk with its major tributary, the West Water. It is double banked for all but the last 400 metres of its two kilometres and comprises eleven well defined pools.

This is superb fly water, with easy access to the pools given the right water height. Spinning is only permitted in high water (over three foot on the gauge), and a mandatory catch and release policy is imposed until 31 May.

The beat fishes well throughout the season, and even in low water fish can be taken in the deeper pools. This is especially true of the Junction Pool, where many salmon and grilse will collect until conditions are suitable for ascending the West Water.

Stracathro is a beautiful beat, with stunning backdrops, excellent fishing and easy access.
