A magnificent example of the smaller Scottish salmon river. In its middle reaches, it has impressive gorge pools – not easy fishing by any means, but testing and often rewarding.
Salmon fishing in the early spring is mediocre although there are signs that it might be showing a slight improvement. Again this is a grilse and summer salmon water which comes into its own from July and, because of its source high up in the mountains, tends to take on the character of a spate river -quick rise, quick fall.
The brown trout fishing is probably better than that of the neighbouring Spey, and summer sea-trout sport can be really excellent. SOS: Feb 11-Aug 26 (Net); Feb 11-Sept 30 (R&L)
