The main stretch of water comprises six miles of double bank fishing on the River Spey, stretching from the Miller's Pool above Boat of Garten to Broomhill Bridge, below the outflow of the River Nethy, with 15 named pools with the best sea trout fishing, a few miles upstream, separated from the Abernethy water by the Kinchurdy fishings, the club's Aviemore beat stretches for a further four miles of single bank fishing on the left bank of the River Spey in and around Aviemore.
The Abernethy and Aviemore Angling Improvement Association now manages the salmon and sea trout fishing on the Aviemore stretch of the Spey, which comprises more than three miles of fishing on the River Spey, from the Old Spey Bridge above the village downstream on the left bank as far as the Alder Bend opposite Pityoulish, which lies on the right bank.
This stretch of the Spey, with 16 named pools, was formerly managed by the Aviemore Angling Association, now merged with the Abernethy Angling Association, this part of the river is generally slower flowing than the lower beats and is bordered by heavy tree cover, in many places it is most suited to spinning and worming but there are also some nice fly pools, particularly for sea trout night fishing.
Permits for the Aviemore Association water are available at Cairngorm Mountain Sports, Aviemore.
