River Management

Ythan District Fishery board

River Ythan at Waterside Bridge Newburgh The Ythan District Fishery Board was established on the 29 April 1864. Under the Salmon Acts (presently stated in the Salmon Act 1986 now consolidated in the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation)(Scotland) Act 2003) it is empowered to protect, enhance and conserve Atlantic Salmon and the Sea Trout and has a general duty to ensure the protection and enhancement of the fishery within the Ythan catchment in Aberdeenshire in the North East of Scotland.

Ugie District Salmon Fishery board

The Ugie District Salmon Fishery Board covers the whole of the River Ugie catchment area, which is situated in the North East corner of Scotland. The river enters the sea to the north of Peterhead, one of the biggest fishing ports in Scotland for landings of white fish and pelagic fish. The River Ugie is a relatively small river in terms of length but still holds good quantities of both salmon and sea trout. In the Ugie District salmon and sea trout are caught by the rod angling fraternity in the river and in the sea from Boddam to Cairnbulg, by traditional Bag net and net and coble fisheries.
