The upper beats (Richmond) run from the junction of the Avon with the Conglas Water on both banks, to the old stone Bridge Buttress which is just downstream of the Tomintoul Distillery. The lower beat (Gordon) runs from the Altnaglander Burn which runs through the pinic site. Fishing on the right bank only to the confluance with the River Livet,( 1.9 mls.).
Bookings are taken from January until September.
WE HAVE A MAXIMUM OF 4 RODS PER BEAT 2 AT EACH END, CHANGING OVER BETWEEN 1PM AND 2PM
We only have a 20 week season and because of decreasing Angler numbers, we now have no one fishing in the 1st three weeks of May, or in a three week period in August and the 1st week of September. The Salmon in May tend to run to the top of the Avon in early season, but they do stop to rest in various Pools on the way, where these silver, fresh run fish can be caught. In June, July, August and September the Salmon are still making their way upstream and from May, Sea Trout are in the beats and can be caught on fly in the white water in daylight and also at night in the Pools. The empty weeks in May and August have been reduced in price to £35 per day and all of September £25 per day.
Catch averages from 2008 to 2014.
Salmon 101 per year. Grilse 26 per year. Sea Trout. 357 per year.
