Where to fish

The Deveron

With over 40 beats on the river fishing is widely available. Beats range from association/club fishings to premier beats that are let to regular tenants. Cancellations do occur on these beats, best to check with the relevant estate/owners. In the spring, fish run through the lower beats to the Coniecleugh beat where the cauld holds them when river temperatures are low. In the summer and autumn some of the best beats are Avochie, Rothiemay, Glennie, Turtory, Marnach Lodge, Forglen, Mountblairy, Dunlugas and Mountcoffer.

The ythan

The estuary beat known as the Newburgh Fishings has 5 beats with 17 named pools. Our entire rod fishery is entirely open and unrestricted in terms of rod numbers. Anglers can fish wherever they choose on the Newburgh beat. Although fish can be taken at low tide the beats are best fished on a falling tide. There are three angling associations on the river - Fyvie, Newburgh and Aberdeen and all have provision for visitors at reasonable cost's. A number of estates have parts of their fishing available to visitors - among them are Esslemont Estate, Ellon Castle, Haddo House, Shiva's Estate and Udny Estate.

The Ugie

A "wee gem" that runs from source to the mouth of the river at the north east town of Peterhead. A river with a fantastic hatchery programme in place, a fish counter and most importantly unrivalled access for disabled anglers.

The river has 6 miles of double bank fishing, but the locals tend to fish off the north bank which contains

over three miles of manicured single bank fishing in this north east

spate river. Fishing methods are with the fly, the worm and spinner.
