Formed in 1933, the Forres Angling Association controls four miles of double bank salmon and sea trout fishing on the lower River Findhorn, extending from the Red Craig pool at Mundole down to the tidal Sea Pool where the river enters the sea in Findhorn Bay. The whole of the association water offers excellent fly fishing, producing salmon in varying heights of water. There are seventeen named fishing pools, most of which are very accessible from convenient car parking places. All pools are easily fished with undemanding wading in most, when it is required at all – many pools are best fished from the bank. In low water conditions, a single-handed rod, or a switch rod, is all that is required to fish many of the pools, while a 13- or 14-foot double handed rod may offer an advantage when the river is running high.

The Forres Angling Association employs Robert Rollo as River Watcher/Banks cleaner. He can also show any new fisherman or visitor the river if available. Sandy McLachlan is also available to give guided tours or help with ghillie duties. Sandy can be contacted on 01309 673913

The River Findhorn Superintendent is Albert Duffus who can be contacted on Mobile 07746295566
