Welcome to the homepage of the River Don Trust, Don District Salmon Fishery Board and the River Don Brown Trout Improvement Association.
Rising in the Cairngorm National Park and flowing 135km East down to the sea in Aberdeen, the Don is Scotland’s 6th largest river draining a catchment of 1312km squared. Home to a range of freshwater species, which include Salmon, Sea trout, Eels and Lamprey, with its specimen Brown Trout perhaps making it most well known.
The three organisations combine to form an effective and adaptive management structure for the River Don catchment, its species and habitats with particular reference paid to the freshwater fish species present.
