Lower Parkhill - River Don


The salmon fishing on the River Don has went rather quiet in the last few weeks so whilst I was out on Saturday catching nothing but the sun, I thought I'd take some pictures of the pools on the Lower Parkhill beat.

A map of Lower Parkhill which is issued to every member and visiting angler.
The beat starts at the Parkhill Bridge from both banks and extends for just over a mile on the North bank and a mile and a half on the South bank. It's owned and run by the Aberdeen & District Angling Association and is probably one of the most productive beats on the river providing members and visiting anglers alike with some of the best fishing the River Don has to offer.

A comprehensive guide to the fishings compiled by local expert angler, John Fyfe can be found on the A.D.A.A website by clicking here >>>>> Lower Parkhill Beat Summary. He takes you on a journey from the top of the beat to the bottom and his knowledge of the beat is a fantastic reference point for any angler planning on fishing this beat. Visitor permits are available all season (15th February - 31st October) to anyone outwith a 25 mile radius of Aberdeen City and offer fantastic value whether fishing for salmon or trout. Information can be found by clicking here >>>>> Visitor Permits

I took these pictures on Saturday and show the beat in low water conditions. The water height on the day was 7" on the SEPA gauge at Parkhill Bridge.
