Salmon Fishing Scotland June 2008.

Salmon Fishing Scotland June 2008.
Low water on the Tay at Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland.

the water height is 0 feet on the Ballathie gauge which is pretty low although in recent years I have seen it down to -6 inches.
Notice the ledges appearing at this height. The picture is of the Horsey pool on the Pitlochrie beat at Stanley on the lower Tay. The Stanley beats of the river Tay are dominated by the red sand stone rock formation and remain the same year in year out despite the massive floods we have in the winter. The ledge at Horsey goes out half way over the river thus making the Scone bank the best side to fish from. The Stanley bank only fishes at 5 foot and above.

I went out to fish the Skerries about a week ago, but gave up after about 30 minutes as I was unsure of where to fish.
Any advise from yourself or anyone familiar with this stretch would be appreciated.
