Abernethy Waters - Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout

This is our main stretch of water covering six miles of double bank fishing on the famous River Spey, with 15 named pools and the best Sea Trout fishing on the river system. In excess of 1100 sea trout are taken from these waters each year.

Fly, spinning and bait fishing are permitted, however, some pools become fly only in the summer months. A 9-10ft trout rod and waders should be used, with Alley Shrimp, Munro Killer, Silver Stoats Tail and Willie Gunn flies offering the best return.

The season runs from February to September, with the best months for Salmon between mid-April to June and September. The long daylight hours of the summer months mean that the best Sea Trout fly fishing is often done in the late evening.

The Abernethy Waters provide the best value for money fishing on the River Spey.
