Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Reports and Prospects March 2009.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Reports and Prospects March 2009.

Tay Reports

Weekly Report.
Last week reported a similar catch to the previous week with 34. There were again salmon reported from all over the district which was very positive for this coming week. There were other fish caught and not reported. Best salmon of the week was a 28lbs salmon off the Newtyle beat below Dunkeld and yes this prize salmon was caught by a lady angler Mrs Helena Carver. The river temperature is now about 42 degrees Fahrenheit or 5 degrees Celsius allowing salmon to run freely throughout the system.

The river was settled for most of the week and with higher temperatures making conditions ideal for spring fishing. This coming week conditions look good but with colder weather expected however this should not deter catches assuming the spring run strengthens as expected.

Here's Mrs Helena Carver with her 28lb springer taken on a harled tomic in the Deans Burn. This fish bottomed out the spring balance at 25lbs and measured 40" the sturdy scale puts this fish around the 28lb mark.

Prospects for the week.
As of Monday morning the prospects on the Tay look good with a settled river. The weather is to remain reasonably settled but slightly colder for the coming week therefore catches should get better. The spring run is overdue and the anticipation is very high. This could be the week hopefully!

The water temperature is about 42 degrees Fahrenheit or 5 degrees Celsius which should not impede the progress of salmon up the system.
There is good availability throughout the river so why not have a go.

As to methods, the river is settled and at a good height, the most likely method of catching a Springer in the Tay this week will favour all methods with settled water. There will certainly be good conditions for fly fishing and spinning from boat and bank. Harling or on some beats spinning from the bank remains a favoured method on the Tay.

Finally all anglers are reminded that the Tay's policy for spring 2009 is that every angler should release the first salmon caught each day, and then no more than one Springer should be taken per day. Spring salmon are a precious resource. Please do what you can to ensure their numbers are allowed to conserve them and produce more spring salmon for the future.
