Doonfoot Fishings

Doonfoot Fishings

The River Doon is the best known River in Ayrshire, and flows from its spawning burns above Dalmellington and also from Loch Doon which gives compensation flow when the river is low. This has the effect of making our beats fishable all season. The average weight of Salmon caught is about 8Ibs, although odd fish of over 20Ibs are caught most years. Grilse average 5Ibs. The Doon is the most prolific of the Ayrshire rivers and our beat (about 1 3/4 miles of the river, from the old railway bridge in Alloway to the sea) is the most prolific averaging over 330 salmon a season. As our season is only 4 months from July to October, it stands up to most of the top beats in Scotland.  Weekly tickets available.
