Pools Description

 

The Guay Pool - Low Water

The Guay Pool – Low Water

Guay Pool

Fishes well in all heights of water from both left & right bank.  Fishing starts at the mouth of the Kincraigie Burn on the right bank, fishing down towards the “big croy”, fish can often be seen running hard up the left bank, however the taking spot is in the middle of the pool near the small croy, the pool starts of slow but quickly picks up pace, making it an ideal fly pool at all heights.

Right bank High, Medium and Low water. Left bank Medium and Low water.

 

 

 

 

The Croy Stream - Low Wate

The Croy Stream – Low Water

The Croy Stream

The Croy Stream fishes best in low water conditions, an excellent spot for summer grilse with it’s fast flowing well oxygenated water, keep an eye open there are a couple of big stones out there that make excellent lies.

 

The Boils

“The Boils” fish best in medium to high water, again the big stones out there are excellent lies and a great spot to intercept spring fish as they take a breather.  A great spot at the backend for fishing in higher flows, the “big croy” providing a bit a shelter from the main flow.

 

The Flats - Low Water

The Flats – Low Water

The Flats

A great spot for Summer Sea Trout fishing, best fished at night in low water, it’s a tough wade but it is possible.

 

Mike’s Bank

An excellent high water pool, however recent floods have caused this to shallow up with gravel.

 

 

The Casting Platform

The Casting Platform

The Casting Platform

Fishes best in medium to high water, however it can also be very productive in low water by wading out into the flow and dangling a fly in the deeper channel near the right hand bank.  Probably know best as a great spot for catching spring fish as they leave the depths of the Bridge Pool.

 

 

 

 

The Bridge Pool

The Bridge Pool

The Bridge Pool

What can I say about the Bridge Pool, well it can probably be split into 3 different pools, the Neck of the Bridge Pool provides classic low water fly fishing, with the actual Bridge Pool fishing best at medium to low water, a big deep pool nearly 40ft deep at summer level!  The Tail of the Bridge Pool, below the railway bridge can be fished at all heights.  However, it is a very productive pool in high water.  The Tail of the Bridge Pool is fished from the bank, where access is made very easy by the reinforced banks.

A great pool when the conditions are right for harling for salmon from the Boat.

 

 

The Dowally Stream

The Dowally Stream

 

The Dowally Stream

A shallow streamy run, which fishes best in low to medium water.  This leads onto Calum’s Corner, a low water pool best fished from the Island.

The Tail of the Island

A classic fly fishing pool, great wading and a perfect pool to intercept those running fish.  Fishes best in low to medium flows, a favoured pool by most Dalguise regulars.

 

 

 

The Otterstone Pool

The Otterstone Pool

The Otterstone Pool

A classic big Tay Pool, fishes at all heights a favoured spot when conditions are right for harling from the boat.  But at low water the full length of the pool can be waded and fished with the fly. It’s a great spring pool, with many a fish hooked at the Rowan Tree at the “Lee of the Island”and in high water a great pool towards it’s tail.

 

 

 

 

 

The Pot Lid

The Pot Lid

The Pot Lid

The Pot Lid is right at the bottom end of the beat, only recently opened up (it’s been the ghillie’s secret for many a year) and is a great spot for summer grilse on the fly.  A very quick piece of water, so it only really fishes at low flows.
