Fish River Spey, Scotland

This evenig, I am focusing on the River Spey, Scotland’s second longest river which rises in the Monadhliath Mountains and runs N.E. for 107 miles (172km) before discharging into the Moray Firth. The Spey is very clean and home to a number of fish species including:

  • Atlantic Salmon
  • Trout
  • European Eel
  • Arctic Char
  • Pike
  • Minnow
  • Stickleback
  • Flounder.

The fishing season runs from Feb 11th to Sept 30th. with popular beats at Wester Elchies, Delfur, Knockando, Tulchan, Castle Grant and Arndilly.The images above were taken near to Grantown-on-Spey.

An impressive river in stunning scenery and very popular with anglers.

Speyside is also home to about 40 whisky distilleries, but that is another story!
