River Dee Paddler and Angler Guidance

As shared users of river systems it is important that paddlers are respectful of other river users. Aboyne Canoe Club schedules the vast majority of its trips for Sundays to avoid conflict with fishermen.

At Aboyne Canoe Club we

  • try and be considerate of shared access and exit points
  • keep a distance from anglers
  • only approach anglers when signalled that it is acceptable to do so


River Dee Paddler and Angler Guidance
The aim of this guidance is to provide helpful information for paddlers and anglers so we can both enjoy our sports.

Scottish Outdoor Access Code: Canoeing,Kayaking, Rafting and Sailing

Access rights extend to non-motorised water-based activities, such as canoeing, rafting, rowing and sailing. Make sure that the river, loch or reservoir is appropriate for your activity and the numbers involved, take care not to interfere unreasonably with other interests and avoid going close towater intakes, abstraction points or spillways. On some water bodies that are intensively used for a wide range of activities, various management measures, such as zoning and byelaws, may be needed for safety or waterquality reasons and to protect the environment. Follow any agreed guidance provided. Respect the needs of anglers by avoiding nets or other fishing tackle. When close to anglers keep noise and other disturbance to a minimum. On lochs,keep a safe distance from anglers. On rivers or other confined waters,await a signal from the angler or ghillie to proceed if they have a line in thewater and follow any suggested route they indicate if safe and practicable todo so. Take extra care when entering and leaving water to avoid damagingthe banks or disturbing wildlife, and use a public slipway if one is close by.
