Salmon Fishing on Darnaway

We are pleased to announce that 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 fourteen named pools from the Essiemore Pool at the top of the beat, all the way down to the Gorge Pool just above Sluie.

The Salmon Leap Pool at Poolie

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 overlooking the impressive Craigie Pool below.

The Upper Home Beat

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. The Upper Home Beat may be taken on a guided or non-guided basis for a minimum of a three-day let.
