The Don District Salmon Fishery Board is the statutory body tasked with protecting and enhancing stocks of salmon and sea trout across the district.
The Don is known for its runs of salmon, particularly in the autumn, but it also has a spring and summer run of fish. During the calm warm summers evenings silvery seatroutmake an appearance, and indeed at this time the angler is never sure what will take their lure, with salmon, seatrout and brown trout all prolific in the river at this time. The Don is also home to eels, loaches, lampreys and pike.
