It produces some fantastic trout throughout the season either from the fly or spinner.

And – the River Spey – a little further away, but closer than you think - and a great day out
Catch - salmon, trout. Pike, sea trout
The famous River Spey runs for over 100 miles from source to sea. It is the fastest flowing river in Europe and falls 1100 feet over it's course. It is perfectly suited to fly fishing for salmon. Fish can be taken anywhere along it's course but the serious fishing begins as the river reaches Aviemore. Not only does the main river offer a great variety of fishing but a number of tributaries, in particular the Rivers Avon and Dulnain, are excellent salmon rivers in their own right.
