If you’re looking for a naturally secluded half mile River Dee salmon beat with easy access and excellent low or high water holding areas for salmon then Lower Woodend is an absolute gem positioned next to the famous Cairnton beat & opposite Upper Blackhall.

With 7 named salmon pools such as the beautiful Hut Pool, Rocks & Sandy's pools to choose from along with another highly respected River Dee name in the form of legendary Dee ghillie Dave Cowie who can often be available if you require a ghillie for the day then you’ve found a venue that has it all. 

The water supply intake for Aberdeen was sited on this beat due to the excellent depth of its pools. When you properly assess this feature from a salmon fishing point of view you’ll realise it also equates to perfect holding habitat for salmon during low water periods when neighbouring Dee salmon beats can struggle due to their shallower nature.

In recent years heavyweight salmon have been caught on Lower Woodend as there are historic spawning beds on this beat where giant River Dee salmon reaffirm their gentics each Winter on the gravels of Lower Woodend. In addition to that fact the riverbanks are naturally secluded with native broadleafed trees and Scots pines creating shaded areas so even during the brightest of days this beat is still comfortable for salmon to hold up in.

This lovely salmon fishing beat is the epitome of River Dee fly fishing and the magic associated of being on this famous Scottish salmon river. I am sure 2017 will bring with it many more salmon fishers who become spellbound by the amazing vibe and scenery of Lower Woodend.

Although currently let as a 2 rod 3 day booking requirement individual day rods may be accessible within 48 hours of your proposed fishing day. Make contact directly with myself via the contact form (above) for any short notice booking requests for this beautiful River Dee fly fishing venue.
