Salmon and Sea Trout

The Glenmuick holiday lodge is situated 300 meters from the river Dee which is one of the world’s great Salmon rivers. It offers some of the finest Salmon Fishing in the world in some breathtaking scenery. In recent years catches on the River Dee have been improving and both numbers and sizes of fish seem to be steadily increasing. There are a great number of exciting and varied beats on which to fish in the area and rods are let by the day.

The Dee season is from 1st February to the end of September with a two week extension to the 15th October on the middle and lower Dee. Glenmuick estate is situated on the Upper Dee where large fresh fish can be caught from as early as March. In addition to the increasing run of spring fish, the river also provides excellent summer and autumn fishing for salmon, grilse and sea trout and river catches remain high right to the end of the season.
