The River Ythan

The River Ythan rises from the Wells of Ythan, at the eastern end of Strathbogie, and flows the thirty odd miles eastwards to enter the North Sea, via a four mile long estuary at Newburgh. The Ythan estuary provides excellent feeding for sea trout and for the large colonies of sea birds. It is on the estuary that the fishing is concentrated, with anything up to around 2000 sea trout, and a small number of salmon, taken each year.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Ythan

Much of the fishing on the estuary is managed by the Newburgh Angling Club . Their beats fish well from late May onwards, peaking in July. Fishing may also be had further upriver at Methlick and Ellon. See also River Ythan Fishing
