Commissioned by the DBIRCT, this film gives a fantastic introduction to trout fishing on the River Deveron. Can you spot our beats?
on the River Deveron
From March 15th right through to October 6th good trout fishing can be had on this stunning river although it’s also fair to say that Springtime offers the most consistent sport with the trout keen to feed off the surface on a range of up-wing insects…
…and as for hunting them the Deveron is a river that offers a wide variety of different water from long slow deep pools through to fast shallow runs and glides, perfect environment for river trout. The Middle sections of this river certainly hold a lot of trout with Deveronside Fishing waters of Upper Netherdale, Carnousie and Ardmiddle being amongst the best beats you can chose to chase the residents of this beautiful river.

The Trout Loch
Weather can disrupt fishing on all rivers – drought and spates can, on occasion, make angling difficult or impossible. For angling guests staying at Waterside Lodge we have a private trout loch on site.
This loch is within the grounds of Waterside Lodge and is stocked with brown and rainbow trout. Fish range in size from a pound and a half but some older brown trout up to 6 pounds have been landed.
