The Castle water beat is made up of Upper and Lower beats where each beat suits 2 rods and can be mostly fished from the left bank over its 2.2 miles of mainly double bank. Lower Castle is well kept with easy access to the pools which can be covered with a single spey cast from a 13’ double handed rod. If the conditions are low or bright, then Upper Castle can provide shade from the trees in the gorge and its deep holding pools ensures a concentration of fish.

2014 saw 48 Sea Trout caught on Castle, but generally they are not targeted and caught by the salmon angler. Sea trout are spectacularly acrobatic and a hard fighting fish, and the easy access pools on Castle make them accessible to night-time fishing when the Sea Trout fishing is arguably at its best. Average size is about 3lb but fish to 8lb and above are not uncommon.

Prolific insect hatches ensure the wild Brownies provide great alternative sport and the wide variety of pools and water means there is plenty of fishing
