Fishing

Very inexpensive fishing is available to locals and visitors on the River Livet between March and the end of September each year as the Glenlivet and Inveravon Community Association control the fishing rights on some two miles from Tombae to the junction of the Livet and the Avon.

There is a good Brown Trout stock with fish being caught each year usually early in the season in excess of two pounds.

The Livet has runs of Salmon and Sea Trout mainly between the middle of May and the end of September, worm fishing is allowed and is mainly successful in spate conditions whereas fly fishing is the norm.

Small Shrimp fly and cascade patterns work well for Salmon and the traditional patterns do well for the Sea Trout and Brown Trout with drab flies such as Greenwells Glory, March Brown and Black Spider fished late afternoon and into dusk yielding some nice surprises for the visiting angler.
Permits are available from the Ballindalloch Post Office, the Tamnavulin Shop and the Croft Inn on the Dufftown road. For more information please contact any of these locations.
