Highland fishing for Salmon, the River Beauly

Apr 19, 2011 | Blog, Featured, Where To Fish

The River Beauly set in wonderful highland scenery is only 12 miles from Inverness and its airport. Not only do the rivers offer lovely surroundings, but the salmon and sea trout fishing is challenging and therefore has much appeal for the discerning sportsman and woman.

It also has two very useful tributaries, the Glass and Farrar which are well worth fishing in their own right.When to fish the BeaulyAlthough the season opens in early February it is rare for fish to be in the river at that time. The odd fish can be caught in late March and a few more in April and May on the lower river below Kilmorack Dam, but it is not until mid June/July that the main

run salmon/grilse begins.

The spring salmon have an average weight of 10lb, and in the summer months the grilse average 6lb. Towards the end of the season the average weight of late running fish in September and October increases, and it is not unusual for fish of 15 to 20lb to be caught. Days have been added to the FishPal system from as little as £18.00 from June onwards for Salmon Fishing.

Upper Beauly: Approximately 2.2 miles of double bank fishing on the Upper Beauly. There are two beats, three rods on each, which are fished in rotation. There is a ghillie if required but will be charged in addition. There is a shared hut on the beat.The beat catches about 80 fish per year. More information

River Glass: The Balmore fishing on the River Glass is located in beautiful Strathglass, one of Scotland’s most picturesque locations and the gateway to Glen Affric. Whilst the River Glass is by definition a tributary of the River Beauly, it’s also a fine salmon river in its own right and Balmore is arguably the best fly water of all the Glass beats.
