Upper Blackhall fishing beat

Upper Blackhall is situated 3 miles west of Banchory on the south bank of the Dee. The beat fishes three rods and has 15 named pools.  It fishes equally well in low and high water.


There are two fishing huts with wood burning stoves. All but three of the 15 pools are accessible by car from the riverside track.


The beat provides perfect fly fishing water which is fast flowing and generally clear. Dependant on rainfall, the beat fishes well throughout the season. Wading is necessary in lower water conditions but the majority is very easy.

Sea trout enter the beat in late April and grilse arrive in June with runs of salmon coming in throughout the spring, summer and autumn dependant on river height.

In common with the remainder of the river and most other UK rivers we have a general code we ask all anglers to abide by. All salmon are released. 


Local experienced Ghillie's are available to book, so please contact us for more information.
