Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 11th June 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 11th June 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 11th June 2011.
The second week of June on the Tay was far more positive than the previous week with much better water conditions. There was also a remergence of some big multi sea winter salmon. Hopefully the river will remain settled from the recent rain and give us good prospects for this coming week.

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

89 salmon were reported last week and 14 sea trout.

On the lower river 39 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. Islamouth was back amongst the salmon as the river dropped back. A regular party on the Meikleour fishing’s had a superb day on Tuesday landing 8 on the fly. Later in the week opposite bank beat owner Alan Parker and his wife enjoyed some excellent sport landing 9 in 3 days. The lower Tay beats below Stanley have started to pick up a few salmon as well. Catholes, Benchil, Fishponds, Waulkmill and Fishponds all caught. Perth angler George McKinlay had a good 18 pounds salmon on Benchil late on Saturday afternoon.
Hopefully the river will remain settled this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.

The middle river reported 20. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats with a good run and good water levels. At the start of the week Dunkeld House had an excellent day on Monday landing 4 salmon up to 26 pounds. Dave Hockenull and Peter McGowan amongst the successful anglers.
At Newtyle Bill Carroll was the lucky angler to land a magnificent 32 pounds beauty on Thursday. Meikleour home beat then had a day to remember on Friday landing 6 and loosing a further 5.
More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 18 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.
The Kinnaird beats, Edradynate and Farleyer continue to catch as a run filters through the upper system.
The salmon fishing on the Tummel continues to flourish with a number of fish being caught of which quite a lot are not recorded on the Fishtay web site. The lower Tummel has been fishing well with Paul Carter landing 2 salmon up to 20 pounds on Tuesday. The Pitlochry club Sawmill stream has been productive as well.
Gordon Nichol continued his success of last week with a lovely 14 pounds sea liced salmon from the Sawmill.
There are now well over 2000 through the Dam as of Sunday and there have been regular catches in Loch Faskally.
This was Jim Fishers account of a good evenings salmon fly fishing on the Tummel.
The Tummel continues to provide marvellous sport. An evening cast on the Tummel at West Haugh after dinner last night proved worthwhile. Starting at 9pm, I was quickly into a fish about 10 pounds on the Hover and a size 9 Park Shrimp. Later in the tail of the Sawmill Stream there were a good number of fish sloshing around which always raises
hopes and anticipation. Sure enough a long cast produced a solid pull which resulted in a beautiful cock fish about 15 pounds landed at 10.30pm. Both fish safely returned.
Thanks Jim and well done.

The Isla reported 12 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.
