The River Findhorn

Sea Trout Fishing on the Findhorn

The River Findhorn , incorporating the smaller Moy Burn, which enters Findhorn Bay just to the west of the River Findhorn outflow, was once a productive sea trout fishery, particularly on the lower four miles managed by the Forres Angling Association. Sadly, recent seasons have seen a marked decline in the sea trout catch, very much in line with the general decline in the Moray Firth area.

The table below shows the recorded sea trout catch on the water controlled by the Forres Angling Association over the past decade. It should be noted that the Association catches of salmon and grilse have shown no similar decline.

The Moray Firth Sea Trout Project (MFSTP) was set up to investigate the continuing decline in sea trout stocks in the rivers flowing into the Moray Firth and has been operational since March 2008. The data gathered in the first three years will form the basis for future remedial projects aimed at reversing this worrying decline of sea trout stocks in the area. See also River Findhorn Fishing
