Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Catch and Release code 2009.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Catch and Release code 2009.

The 2009 Catch and Release Code

For the 2009 season, the Board is again recommending the successful catch and release code which was implemented in 2008:

Start of the Season to 31 May
The first fish caught each day by each individual angler must be released. Each individual angler then has the option of keeping one subsequent fish only, per day.

No worming.

From 1 June to end of season
All hen fish to be released. The aim should then be to release at least 50% of cock fish caught, in particular cock fish weighing over 15 lbs.

No worming in September and October.

All season
All coloured fish should be released.

All Sea Trout should be released

Only one treble hook should be used on Rapala type lures.
Building on catch and release success

Last season the Board’s catch and release policy was seriously strengthened, a move which was widely supported and applauded by anglers, ghillies and proprietors alike. The result was that the spring catch and release rate rose from 40—50% to 75% immediately. This will have resulted in many more precious spring salmon eggs being laid which is essential for the future well being of the spring salmon stock and angling itself.

Now that the vital corner has been turned this success must be maintained and hopefully improved on. For the sake of the future, thank you in anticipation for releasing at least your first salmon of each day.
