Helmsdale – Lower

Three quarters of a mile of good fly water with some reliable fish-holding pools on the lower river upstream from the harbour. Known as Lower Helmsdale or Town Water. The river benefits from controlled flows from the dam at Badanloch (at the top). Includes good sea trout water.

The Helmsdale Tackle Company are a good source of information for this beat.
