Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Spring Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 4th June 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Spring Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 4th June 2011.

River Tay Spring Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 4th June 2011.

The last week of few days of May and beginning of June on the Tay was far more positive than the previous week with much better water conditions. Hopefully the river will remain settled from the recent rain and give us good prospects for this coming week.

The river was settled from the previous week and the river temperature settled around 54 degrees Fahrenheit or 12 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

68 spring salmon were reported last week and 16 Sea trout.

On the lower river 22 fresh salmon were caught. The river temperature is coming up now encouraging the salmon to run hard. Sea Trout are running as well now giving the lower beats some good sport. The lower beats from Stanley upwards caught a few salmon over the week but this should improve if the river drops further in the coming week.
Hopefully the river will remain settled this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.

The middle river reported 9. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats with a good run and good water levels. Meikelour, Kercock, Newtyle, Dunkeld House and Dalmarnock continue to catch but as the river drops further more fish will be caught. A notable catch this week came from Newtyle, Dunkeld with Mrs Maureen Carle landing her first ever Salmon weighing an impressive 23 pounds. Another victory for the fairer sex.
On Dalmarnock Matt Kelly landed a lovely fresh salmon on a flying C on Thursday.
More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 23 were reported, this was far more encouraging and shows the spring salmon are reaching the top of the system with all the big water we have had recently. At Dalguise John Christison, from Dundee, caught a Sea-liced 11 pounds Salmon from The Casting Platform, on his first visit to Dalguise on Tuesday then on Thursday Colin Henderson, after losing a Salmon in the morning, caught and landed a beautiful Silver Sea-liced 14 pounds Cock Salmon, in The Boils, at The Tail of The Guay Pool. Lower Kinnaird and Edradynate featured but unfortunately I have no further information from those beats. The Pitlochry Angling club beats continue to flourish with favourable conditions again this past week. There have been numerous salmon caught on the Tummel over the last week on all the beats. Some notable ones included a 23 pounds fish for Tony Brown at Portnacraig and a 16 pounds salmon for Club President Jimmy Ross off the Sawmill stream. Gordon Nichols caught his first salmon of 9 pounds, which was very popular. Perth Angler Alum Williams managed a hat trick of the Dam on Friday with fish up to 14 pounds. A truly magical week.
There are now about 2000 through the Dam as of Sunday.

The Isla reported 14 all from Coupar Grange.

Many thanks for all the pictures everyone sent me of spring salmon and all who have sent me their individual fishing experiences this and last season on the river.
I would be most grateful if you to do the same this season by emailing me at to be included in this report.
