Both beats are enjoyable to fish and produce some cracking Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon.

Inverurie Burgh Fishings

Inverurie Angling Association offers fishing on the Inverurie Burgh Fishings for both members and visitors.

The new management of this water by the club in 2018 was great news and will hopefully continue for many years to come!

The Inverurie Burgh Fishings extend to approximately six miles, consisting of left bank fishing on the River Don ( plus a short stretch of right bank fishing between the Don Bridge and Bypass bridge ) and right bank fishing on the River Ury.

There are nineteen named pools on the beat, thirteen of these are on the Don. There is a lot of water to explore and a great variety of water to fish, so travel light and move often.

Fishing permits for the Inverurie Burgh Fishings can be purchased at Sloan's Tackle Shop, 125-129 High Street, Inverurie, AB51 3QJ.

Day permits are also available to purchase online via FishPal ...... Click here to visit the Inverurie page on the FishPal website.

Ardmurdo & Keithhall Fishings

Inverurie Angling Association also manages the Ardmurdo & Keithhall Fishings, where a limited number of season permits are available for club members. These become available on a regular basis and members can also fish the water on a day permit.

The Keithhall Fishings start directly below the Inverurie Burgh Fishings and the River Ury. This is left bank fishing on the River Don, most of the Keithhall section is tree lined and the ability to roll cast certainly comes in handy, but the water is deep in places and well worth exploring.

Leaving the trees behind, you now enter the Ardmurdo section and the river flows through more open farmland. There is a good variety of water to fish all the way down the beat, which ends when you reach the marker for the start of the Kintore Fishings.

Fishing permits for the Ardmurdo & Keithhall Fishings can be purchased at Watsons Hardware Shop, 44-48 Market Place, Inverurie AB51 3XN.

NEWS SNIPPETS


A new IAA Facebook page has been set up ready for the 2019 season. Click here to visit the new Inverurie Angling Association Facebook Page.


On the first Saturday of each Salmon Season Inverurie Angling Association traditionally holds a March to the River to mark the opening of the river.
This year the event will be held on Saturday 16th February 2019. Meeting up at the Kintore Arms Hotel in Inverurie between 8.45 and 9.00 am for tea/coffee/biscuits, the March to the River sets off from the hotel at 9.30.


2018 was a difficult season due to the great weather that we enjoyed, high temperatures and low water conditions not being ideal for fishing. But the River Don actually fished quite well in the Inverurie area all things considered.

The club is looking to improve the catch return system in 2019 ( mainly for the Inverurie Burgh Fishings ) as the numbers from the catch returns submitted are possibly somewhat lacking. Please do your bit and remember that it is a condition of your fishing permit to report your catches.

Ardmurdo/Keithhall Fishings - 47 Salmon/Grilse to 18lb, 8 Seatrout to 4lb and 143 Brown Trout to 4.5lb

Inverurie Burgh Fishings - 45 Salmon/Grilse to 20lb, 6 Seatrout to 6lb and 176 Brown Trout to 6lb


Anglers that fish the Inverurie Burgh Fishings may wish to note that there is likely to be limited access to the water in the railway bridge area of the beat during the 2019 season. This is due to maintenance work being carried out on the bridge.
