River Findhorn

Latest from Ian Neale, Altyre.

It seems to have been quite a long cold and prolonged Winter period over these last couple of months, with some good spells of heavy snow falling over the River Findhorn catchment up in the Monhadliath mountains.

Air temperatures however have been fluctuating recently with milder conditions, giving spells of snow melt releasing into the river!  Hopefully though it is still early days in terms of potentially colder weather systems moving in over the upcoming weeks and months, as we have seen so many times in previous years!


The new salmon fishing season starts on the River Findhorn on February 11th, so local anglers and visitors are all champing at the bit to be back on the river chasing Silver!


Please do contact me: [email protected] for all information regarding all fishing opportunities and availabilities on the River Findhorn throughout the 2023 season.


River Nairn

The Nairn Angling Association AGM is to be held on the 13th December at 7.30pm in the Viewfield Bowling Club pavilion.

Any members wishing to bring up any items for discussion please send them to the secretary by 30th November.

We hope to see a good turn out now that covid has mostly receded.
