Speyside Fishing

 

River Spey Salmon Fishing

Beautiful Rivers in The Highlands of ScotlandThe River Spey runs for more than 100 miles from its source to the sea falling 330 meters over its course making it the fastest flowing river in Europe. This makes it perfect for fly fishing for salmon and the fish can be taken anywhere along its course however the best fishing is available where the river reaches Aviemore. The main river offers a huge variety of fishing but there are also numerous tributaries especially the River Avon and River Dulnain which are great salmon rivers in their own right.

Depending on the beat you are fishing and the time of year can effect the cost of fishing. The River Spey has some of the best Association water fishing available in Scotland which is very reasonably priced with excellent opportunities to catch fish from the very first day of the season. At the other end of the scale there are expensive options for example Arndilly in May or Tulchan in July both of which are considered the cream of the fishing.

Salmon Fishing on the River SpeyThe River Spey is influenced by steady snowmelt through to the summer months and low water is rarely a problem. It has a massive catchment with huge areas of the Monadhliath and Cairngorm Mountains being drained. Because the river is level even if the the river is running low in mid summer there is always a good run of summer salmon, grilse and sea trout. There are very few days lost to big spates due to the way the River Spey reacts so slowly to rainfall which results in plentiful fishing and hardly any days lost due to the elements.

The River Spey fishing season opens on 11th February and closes on 30th September and fresh salmon are spread throughout the system for the opening day of the season. Fishing is always available for anyone that enquires. Access to some middle and lower river beats is limited due to regular tenancy and timeshare ownership but you can always enquire at local tackle shops to check on last minute availability.
