2021 Fishing latest.

We ended the 2020 season with a total catch of 174 compared to the 2019 catch of 183. However when you consider the fishing effort was reduced by over 60% and the catch was only down by 5% I am fairly certain 2020 would have been a good season if we didn’t have to take the necessary COVID precautions. I'm sure the missing spring component of the catch figures would have improved the 2020 catch significantly and we saw a better run of grilse which is a positive sign.

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.
