The Waulkmill Beat forms the lower part of that stretch of river formerly known as the Lower Scone Salmon Fishings. The fishings start at the bottom of the Fishponds beat and extend along the east bank for about 3,000 yards downstream to a point just below Goldcastle.
Access to the river bank is excellent. The top fishing hut at Waulkmill is situated just upstream from the old ferry and access for vehicles is by way of a public road that runs from Stormontfield Road down to Perth Racecourse and on down to the river bank.
Access is also available to the west (right) bank of the river by way of the public road that runs from Scarth Road, Luncarty, down to Hatton, just opposite Ferry Cottage.
The two fishing huts are well maintained and comfortable and each is equipped with Calor Gas heaters, tables and chairs as well as a separate toilet. Adjacent to the huts are designated car parking areas.
The beat is fished in two separate halves, Waulkmill and Goldcastle and with the benefit of the reciprocal arrangement with the proprietor of the opposite bank, clients will fish Waulkmill and Goldcastle on alternate days.
