Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 18th June 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 18th June 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 18th June 2011.

The third week of June on the Tay was fairly normal with good water conditions. 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.

69 salmon were reported last week and 13 sea trout.

On the lower river 25 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 continues to be amongst the salmon as the river dropped back. Taymount, Stobhall and Ballathie continue to pick salmon up but are looking for more settled weather and lower river levels. On the very lower Tay more salmon are being caught which is encouraging and hopefully will continue to improve.
Hopefully the river will remain settled this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.

The middle river reported 10. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats with a good run and good water levels. More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 27 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 upper beats continue to catch as a run filters through the upper system.
Neill Sproull sent this report from Upper Farleyer after a good day. “I Fished Upper Farleyer yesterday and managed to take a couple of fish on the fly. First was a lovely summer salmon of 12 pounds and second was 4 pounds grilse, both fish were sea liced and had obviously made rapid progress upriver. Both took a size 9 Cascade variant.
A great day on a stunning beat, myself and the other rods all saw a large number of fresh fish throughout the day most in the 12-15 pounds class with a few grilse in amongst them. My only surprise at the end of the day was that we did not have further success to report.” Thanks Neill.
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. It was yet again another good week for the Pitlochry Angling Club beats with several salmon landed on the fly. Gordon Nichol caught a 21 pounds fish on the Sawmill on Tuesday. The club have now had 181 salmon this season, which is fantastic. The count at the lader now exceeds 2500.

The Isla reported 7 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.
