River management

The River Deveron District Salmon Fishery board

The River Deveron District Salmon Fishery Board was originated by the Salmon Fisheries Act of the 19th century. The Boards constitution, along with other Boards, was changed in 2003 and is now provided for by the 2003 & 2013 Acts.

The Boards management district comprises the natural catchment area of the river Deveron, which includes the rivers Bogie and Isla. The district includes some important coastal burns, The Burn of Boyne, The Water of Philorth, and the Water of Troupe. All of these discharge into the North Sea on Aberdeenshire’s north coast, for which the Board has responsibility between Cowhythe Point and The Water of Philorth.

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.
