Our crystal-clear lochs, two snow-fed rivers, great estates combined with sea angling and stocked trout fisheries mean that Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire is one of the best places to fish in Scotland.
Take a dive into raw and elemental nature, enjoying serene surroundings and scenic landscapes in either a city or countryside setting as you catch fresh Salmon, Brown Trout and Sea Trout.
The pristine waters of the River Dee gave birth to modern fly fishing for salmon whilst the River Don is one of the best wild Brown Trout rivers in Europe. Aberdeenshire's River Ythan produces specimen sea trout and the River Deveron holds the record for the largest salmon caught on fly in the UK.
Anglers come from all over the globe to fish these wonderful rivers that are woven into the cultural history of Aberdeenshire and play an important role in our communities.
Whether you're trying fly fishing for the first time or an experienced angler seeking a new challenge, get a real taste for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire at one of the many fishing and angling spots on offer.
