The Salmon Pools
The ownership of Carron sits opposite Laggan. Each owns one bank of the river, Carron the right bank. The fishing is organised on “an up and down” basis. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays Carron Rods fish the Upper Beat and the Lower Beat on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Access to both sides of the river is facilitated by Carron Bridge.
With the possible exception of Pol Voulin all the fishing is best undertaken from the bank or by wading. There are six boats but for the most part these are only used to assist the elderly or infirm and always with a ghillie in attendance. Carron like most of the Spey is a ”fly only” beat. The use of a wading stick when actually in the water is strongly recommended.
