River Security

There are a lot of seasonal visitors in Deeside at present which means we can sometimes have an isolated incident of people fishing without required permission and access to fishing beats. It is unlawful to fish the River Dee without permission from the fishing beat proprietor, ghillie or factor. Salmon Poaching is a criminal offence in Scotland and has severe penalties for anyone convicted of poaching.

We would urge anyone noticing any suspicious activity to contact the River Office on 013398 80411 which is manned 24 hours per day to deal with such incidents. Bailiffs will attend any incidents that may occur and take appropriate action as necessary.
