Update 15 Jan 21
Gordon Castle is hoping to run a full season of fishing this year, opening on the 11th of February. However, this will be within the Scottish Government guidance and restrictions for Covid 19. This may prevent some people from travelling and the number of people in a group. It will certainly impact on the use of the fishing hut and the proximity to a fisher in which a ghillie can operate. Please e-mail the factor on email@example.com (or call on 01343 820244) if you’d like to discuss availability or our Coronavirus policy and the implications.
Gordon Castle offers the ideal venue for a fishing holiday in the Scottish Highlands. We manage eight miles of double bank fly-fishing on the world renowned River Spey, one of the “big four” Scottish salmon rivers, and our catches of salmon and sea trout are amongst the most prolific in Scotland. All our fishing holidays are individually tailored to your requirements, include ghillie support, and can be arranged with excellent fully catered or self-catering accommodation.
“There is no question that this is the finest and most profound stretch of water in Scotland.” A.Grimble, The Salmon River Of Scotland, 1902
All of the Gordon Castle and Brae Water beats is fly fished with between three and six rods and, in the interests of conservation, we usually operate a catch and release policy for sea trout and salmon. We offer a variety of fishing throughout the year, with the salmon season running from 11thFebruary to the end of September. From June onwards the salmon are at their most prolific. However, the ardent fly-fisher may prefer the earlier season when the “springers”, although fewer in number, provide the fiercest fight and a great sense of achievement when caught.
