We are pleased to announce that for the 2019 season, we are also able to offer salmon fishing on the spectacular and renowned Upper Home Beat on Darnaway, River Findhorn, which is situated at the lower end of the River Findhorn Gorge. We can offer exclusive salmon fishing for up to two rods of double bank fishing, but fishing off the left bank from Mid May through to early August. There are some twelve named pools from the Streenoch Pool all the way down to the Gorge Pool just above Sluie.

The famous Salmon Leap Pool at Poolie is also included in the fishing, where given the right conditions, fish will often be seen ascending the Falls. There is also a well equipped fishing hut situated and overlooking the impressive Craigie Pool below.

The Upper home Beat is a really exciting stretch of water to fish for the late Spring salmon through May/June and then the Grilse and Summer run salmon arrive in late June through July/August. The beat fishes well in low to medium high water and for those who enjoy fishing a riffled hitch tube or surface fly, the Upper Home offers the perfect opportunity.

Bed and breakfast accommodation may be arranged at Bradbush House at Darnaway throughout the season from March to September. Please contact ian@speycaster.net for details and information on all of our guided salmon fishing and Spey Casting instruction packages.
