★★★★★ (1)

1000 yard double bank, boat and bank fishing depending on the time of year with a hut and wc.
Large pool with good features at the mouth of the Shochie and Ordie system.

In 2021 Luncarty is fished on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Luncarty is approximately half-a-mile in length with five named pools: Shochie Mouth, Big Stone, Eddys, Boat Hole and the Willow Tree. The mouth of the Shochie and Ordie burns come in at the top of the beat making an attractive stopping off point for passing salmon and sea trout, especially in the Autumn.

The beat fishes four rods and has one boat and a fishing hut by the river. The beat makes for good fly and spin fishing from both bank and boat.

September and October can be very productive with sizable salmon in high teens to twenties being caught from both bank and boat.

Spring Fishing
During the period January to April, fishing is from either bank. A ghillie and boat is not available. Spring permits allow you to fish on one day per week from the 15th January to the 30th April. They cost £200 plus VAT for the whole period.

Summer Fishing
During the months of May, June and July, day lets are available without a ghillie and boat. Summer permits are available from May to the end of July (84 days). Salmon/Sea Trout summer permits cost £150 plus VAT. Sea Trout only permits are also available at a cost of £75 and only trout fly rods are allowed to be used.
During the period May to the end of June fishing on Luncarty is bank only.

Autumn Fishing
Daily lets are available with a ghillie and boat. Weekly bookings are available and the beat can be paired with Catholes Stanley for a consecutive day booking. This autumn, bank only rods (without a ghillie) will be available on an experimental basis.

Last Report for 2020.

It was a reasonably quiet end to the season with only a few fish landed over the last week. The river was surrounded with Autumn gold but there was little evidence of silver in the river confirming that there was no late back end run.

In the last few days Gerry Martin landed a nice fish in Luncarty pool from the boat.

David Brand landed a smaller salmon on the fly from Luncarty.David and Ray Gardiner enjoyed a good day in the boat finally capturing fish at the end of the day.  lastly Ranald Allan caught 3 salmon on a floating Devon again in Luncarty on the second last day. 

It has been a good season overall with improvements in catches especially over the summer period. There is certainly renewed optimism for next season. Our availability for 2021 is all ready on Fishpal but you can contact me directly at as well. We amassed some 130 salmon off our Catholes, Pitlochrie, Benchil and Luncarty beats this year with just under 70% being caught on fly and achieved 92% Catch and Release. 

Looking forward to seeing you next season.
