Excellent Fishing for Sea Trout
Sea-trout season - 11 February 2013 to 31 October inclusive
The Deveron produced a total of 1362 sea trout in 2010, and before the general decline in north east coast sea trout numbers the river produced in excess of 3000 fish in a season. The Sea Trout are a good average size (3lb - 5lb) with fish of 7lb+ not being uncommon. The Castle Fishery includes some of the best sea trout pools on the Deveron, and catches of around 50 fish have been achieved despite light fishing and few anglers targeting sea trout at night. At Castle a days fishing normally runs from midnight for a 24 hr period, but during the peak sea tout period (June & July) a days fishing runs from 7pm for a 24 hour period to allow anglers to target the sea trout at night. A Saturday evening ticket purchase during this period will run until 7pm on the following Monday as there is no fishing on a Sunday.
