Spey – Gordon Castle

The River Spey is one of the “big four” Scottish salmon rivers with the Gordon Castle and Brae Water beats are amongst the most famous in the World. Spread over eight miles, the eight beats of double bank salmon fishing are together probably the largest and most prolific salmon fishery in Britain.

Each Beat has its own ghillie and is fished by between three and six rods.  Fishing is with fly only, and a largely catch and release policy for salmon and sea trout is in force.

Salmon run throughout the season which begins on the 11th February and finishes at the end of September. The months of June onwards are the most prolific but the salmon, known as “springers” which run earlier in the season, although fewer in number, provide the fiercest fight and a great sense of achievement when caught.

Sea trout fishing during the long evenings of June and July is particularly special.

The Estate has a variety of fishing available throughout the year, which varies in price depending on the time of year. Please contact us for more information.
