Situated 4 miles downstream of Huntly, Coniecleugh is a double bank, four rod beat stretching for 2.1 miles. It is a natural and wild beat with a reputation of holding up spring salmon waiting below the old weir before ascending further, and for holding salmon during the course of the season throughout the 18 named pools. More than 100 salmon and sea trout each have been landed annually on the beat in recent years to the delight of anglers.
The Coniecleugh and adjacent Lower Castle beats are two of the higher catching beats for Sea Trout, as they slow down to wait below the ‘Meeting Pot’ before running up the river Bogie, a main Sea Trout tributary of the Deveron. In each of the last five years Sea Trout over 7lb have been caught and in 2015 a 14 lbs fish was landed. This beat is also known for its wild brown trout fishing, where each year fish over 5lb are landed on dry fly. To accommodate larger fishing parties or for a greater choice of water, consider booking the beat together with the Lower Castle beat situated upstream and adjacent to Coniecleugh.
