The Novar Fishings

The Novar Fishings are split into 6 rotating beats over two sections of the river: the upper beats comprising Beats 1 and 2; and the lower beats comprising Beats 3, 4, 5 and 6. The upper and lower beats are split by about 2.3 miles (3.7 km) of fishings controlled by Kildermorie and Ardross Castle estates. There is a Fishery Manager and a part-time ghillie on the Novar beats who will oversee your visit, and should you want them, dedicated ghillie services, and GAIC-qualified instruction & guiding are also available. Beginners do particularly well on Novar, and there are typically 20-30 ‘first salmon’ caught here annually.
