Scotland is the home of salmon fishing, famed for its beautiful rivers and magnificent scenery and salmon fishing on the River Findhorn at Logie is no exception. The estate offers interesting and exciting fishing on the beautiful River Findhorn, covering a total of 3.25 miles of the river with the downstream limit being about 9.5 miles from the river mouth. The Findhorn is a medium sized spate river, and the Logie section covers some spectacular gorge scenery with the chance to catch a mixture of salmon and grilse, and, occasionally, sea trout. For more information on the River Findhorn, please visit www.FishFindhorn.co.uk, where you can also view our catch statistics.
When to Fish
Although the season for salmon and sea trout runs from mid-February to the end of September, fish do not normally reach Logie and Relugas until April or early May (timing is dependent on water temperature, which needs to reach 42degF for salmon to come up the Sluie falls just below Logie) and fishing continues until late September.
Fish caught in April, May and early June are predominately salmon, with grilse normally starting to run in late May. Thereafter a mixture of salmon and grilse are caught. Few sea trout are caught.
The Fishing on Logie Estate: Logie and Relugas Beats
All fishing is from the right bank and is fly only. We offer fishing for a maximum of four rods.
- The Logie Beat (2 rods) is fished Monday to Saturday.
- The Relugas Beat (2 rods) is split into the Middle Beat (fished Monday, Wednesday and Friday) and the Upper Beat (fished Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday). By arrangement with the neighbouring estate there is no left bank fishing on the Relugas beats.
Relugas and Logie Beats can be taken together, or separately. Please note that if you take one or other section of the river, you are restricted to fishing only in these areas on the appropriate days. The beats are normally let by the week, although 3-day and even 1-day lets are available for certain dates. Please contact us if you have a specific date in mind.
We have a resident ghillie, Ewen Manson, who is a real expert on this stretch of the river, as well as rod, reel and line - both of which can be booked or not as you prefer. We also provide a comprehensive pool guide, written by Ewen, who will normally be available to show you onto the river and get you started in the best spots for the current conditions.
