Fishing


We have extensive river fishings on the Rivers Dee, Don, Ythan and Feugh, and also two stillwater fisheries. More photos can be found on the gallery page.

Our Rivers & Lochs

We have extensive river fishings on the Rivers Dee, Don, Ythan and Feugh. Between them, these waters offer superb game fishing for Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout.

We also have stillwater fishing on the Loch of Loirston and Millpond Fishery, both stocked with Blues & Rainbows.

Visitors & Day tickets

Visiting anglers can buy day or weekly tickets from the ADAA shop for most of our waters.

River Dee

On the River Dee, we have fishings in or near the heart of the city, at Garthdee, Banchory Devenick, and the tidal Pots and Fords beat. “The Bothy”, our de-facto headquarters is situated on the bank here, on Riverside drive.

River Don

The River Don is renowned for the quality of it’s wild brown trout, with trophy fish being landed each season. Salmon and sea trout are also taken on all our Don beats.

River Ythan

We have extensive fishings on the River Ythan and these include the tidal Machar Pool and inland waters around Methlick & Ardlethen. Once the premier sea trout river in Britain, known for it’s large sea trout and salmon, the Ythan remains a unique and rewarding venue on which to pursue these migratory fish.

River Feugh

We have a short stretch on the Feugh, a tributory of the Dee, where the right water conditions can provide some surprising sport.

Loch of Loirston

This Loch offers year-round fly fishing from the bank or by float tube for stocked Rainbow and Blue trout.

Millpond Fishery

A small, easily accessed fishery for Rainbow and Blue trout. Please note that the location is a horse livery and therefore members need to be aware of horses and be considerate to riders.
