Scotland's Hidden Gem - The River Deveron is a famous and prolific salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishery and in terms of catches is consistently the fifth highest in Scotland.
Salmon can be encountered right from opening day on February 11th anywhere on the river but the higher beats are usually a favourite. During April and May the brown trout fishing is superb with many specimens of 5 to 6 lb being caught each year.
Sea Trout start running towards the end of May until July and again a 7 lb fish is not uncommon.
The grilse run begins mid July but given water can start in June and can last all season.
