Situated on the lower River Findhorn, with fishing off the left-hand bank, we are also able to offer prime Spring salmon fishing for two rods, on the Meads of St. John beat at Darnaway, through the first two weeks of April. This wonderful lower Findhorn beat suits beginners to intermediate salmon fly fishers and those anglers who have limited mobility.
This productive beat offers some really great early Spring salmon fishing, with easy vehicular access to all pools, on this stunning lower Findhorn beat. The beat offers over a mile of single bank fishing for two rods starting at the fantastic high water Palamore Island pool, then down through to the amazing Scur pool flanked by its’ high towering sandstone cliffs and ledges on the opposite bank.
Below the well-equipped fishing hut by Roan pool, the next accessible pool is the Cothall Island pool, which is a truly enjoyable cast and fishes well, either off the bank or wading down into the tail of the pool, just above the rapids, flowing into the New Pool below. The New pool is another readily accessible and productive pool, fishing off the bank or wading down into the tail of the pool.
There are several streamy runs leading down into the Tail of St. John’s pool, which again is readily accessed from the New pool by a good footpath and with easy wading or fishing off the bank. Given decent medium/high water conditions this pool can offer some really great early Spring salmon fishing sports. Fishing on the Meads of St. John at Darnaway may be taken on a guided basis for either three or six-day lets.
