Novar Estate Fishings


The Novar Estate Fishings comprise about 6.2 miles (10 km) of double-banked salmon fishing, split into 6 rotating beats over two sections of the river: the upper beats comprising Beats 1 and 2; and the lower beats comprising Beats 3, 4, 5 and 6. The upper and lower beats are split by about 2.3 miles (3.7 km) of fishings controlled by Kildermorie and Ardross Castle estates.

The average length of each beat is just over 1 mile (1.6 km), with typically 15 to 20 named pools per beat allowing for 4 rods. Novar own both banks throughout the length of our beats. Most of the fishing is accessed from the southern (right) bank, except for some pools on Beats 2, 4 and 5, accessed by footbridge or road bridge.

There is a part-time ghillie, and over the course of a full week's fishing, anglers will generally fish all 6 beats on the rotation, though shorter lets are also available.
