Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 25th June 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 25th June 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 25th June 2011.

The forth week of June on the Tay was fairly normal with good water conditions at the end of the week. Hopefully the river will remain settled from the recent rain and give us good prospects for this coming week.

The river was more settled at the end of the week after a spate on Wednesday and the river temperature settled around 55 degrees Fahrenheit or 13 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

54 salmon were reported last week and 35 sea trout.

On the lower river 21 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 on Monday. Then at the end of the week when the river settled after the Wednesday spate. The odd other salmon was recorded but the lower beats 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. Sea Trout catches also improved this week on the lower Tay with Redgorton and Luncarty figuring in the catches.
Hopefully the river will remain settled this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.

The middle river reported 11. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats but more settled water levels would help.
Dunkeld House had a good day on Saturday with Willie Cummins landing 4 salmon up to 14 pounds on a Rapala, which is a memorable days sport in any ones fishing calendar. More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 19 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.
At Dalguise Donald Cameron caught a beautiful 18 pounds sea-liced salmon at the Tail of The Bridge Pool on Wednesday.
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. Perth Angler Steven Watt continues to have a good season on the club water landing several more this past week at Portnacraig. He commented that it has been the best season for a number of years. The lower Tummel has been doing reasonably well also. Gordon Nichol landed a cracking 22 pounds salmon from the Green bank, which was covered in sea lice on Tuesday. The count at the ladder now exceeds 3300.

The Isla reported 3 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.
