Salmon Fishing Scotland Autumn Salmon still running in November 2010.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Autumn Salmon still running in November 2010.

This is a fresh run grilse weighing approximately 6 pounds that was on the bank of the river Tay today on the Catholes beat at Stanley, Perthshire, Scotland. The official Tay salmon fishing season for rods finished on 15th October 2010 but the otters do not stop fishing for food. The Atlantic salmon run was much better this year which has encouraged everyone throughout Scotland. In particular the grilse run was very strong. There does not seem to be a defined peak to the grilse run any more. Back in the 80's and 90's the grilse run was at it's greatest in late July on the Tay but in recent years the run has only really started in August and continued right to the end of the season. This was certainly the case this year. At Stanley in August, September and October grilse accounted 80% of the total catch. Even on the last few days of the season sea liced grilse of 4, 5 and 6 pounds were part of the daily catch. There is plenty of evidence of changing runs on all the rivers in Scotland. Do the really big autumn salmon now run after the season ends?
