The Deveron salmon and sea trout season officially opens on the 11th February and closes on 31st October (inclusive) and the brown trout season runs from the 15th of March to the 6th of October (inclusive).
The Deveron has a well-deserved reputation as top class salmon river, with runs of spring, summer and often prolific runs of autumn salmon through to its season’s end. It is a river of big fish and each season brings in some fish in the 30lbs (13.6Kg) class. The Deveron has the fifth highest salmon and sea trout rod catch in Scotland and currently holds the record for the heaviest UK fly caught salmon, weighing 61lbs (27.6Kg) and caught by Mrs. Clementina “Tiny” Morison on 21st October 1924. The Deveron is also well known for high quality wild brown trout fishing and the river regularly produces specimens of over 5 lbs (2.26Kg). All Anglers are asked to follow the DEVERON ANGLING CODE FOR SALMON & TROUT 2024 and complete a GYRODACTYLUS SALARIS ANGLER DECLARATION .
