2021 Fishing latest.

We ended the 2021 season with a total catch of 202, which is our best total for 5 years and compares well with our total of 174 in 2020 and 183 in 2019. Overall we have to be pretty happy with the season given the COVID restrictions we had in place for the year, and the fact that our fishing pressure was about 80% of a normal season. Generally, the fish stocks seemed to be pretty healthy by modern standards, but our catches suffered quite a bit with the very low water in August and September.

Salmon fishing at Lethen includes the choice of prime beats on the beautiful River Findhorn from early May to the end of September.

The three rod Dunearn Beat is the top beat of the Lethen water and offers the angler every type of pool and stream in the Findhorn book. The two rod Daltra and Altnahara Beats are let together and rotate over the week combining to provide a superb variety of angling opportunities as the river passes through the steep Altnahara gorge and then moves to the open landscape of the Daltra beat.

With the fishing we let:

Dunearn Lodge (sleeping up to five couples) with the three rod beat Dunearn.

Dulsie Cottage (sleeping two couples) with the two rod beat Daltra/Altnahara.

On all of the beats the scenery is magnificent, from the steep and unforgettable Altnahara gorge to the more open vistas of the Dunearn and Daltra Beats.

Trout fishing is also available on the picturesque Loch Belivat from the beginning of April to the end of September.

All fishing is by fly only and with a sensible catch and release code.
