The Muiresk beat on the River Deveron
Muiresk offers fly fishing on the River Deveron, one of the famous fly fishing rivers of North East Scotland. You can fish for sea trout, brown trout and salmon. We are near Turriff in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
There are 3 rods available on the beat, on a fly only basis, and basic tuition is available by prior arrangement for those who have booked fishing. There are 12 named pools and it is nearly all double bank. There are some lovely holding pools and it fishes well from the end of May. There is plenty of white water and so it can fish well in low water. You can check availability here.
Salmon are encountered from the season’s start, Sea Trout start running towards the end of May and April and May is normally exceptional for the Brown Trout. The British record for a salmon caught on fly came off the Deveron and weighed 61 lb.
We have two well-appointed cottages if you need accommodation while fishing, which are amongst the best on the river. These are available from the 1st March - 31st October.
Tuition is available in the open season to those who have booked fishing.
