Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 30th July 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 30th July 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 30th July 2011.
The last week of July on the Tay was much better with settled conditions for the week. Hopefully the river will remain settled for the current week and give us good prospects for this coming days. The first grilse are being seen and caught and there is a run of top quality summer salmon.

The river temperature settled around 60 degrees Fahrenheit or 16 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

130 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 104 fresh salmon were caught. The lower river is now starting to produce results as the conditions improve and the river level drops. Almondmouth had another reasonable week considering the conditions and all the lower beats have started to pick up fish on a regular basis. Taymount, Stobhall, Ballathie and Cargill are fishing much better and Islamouth continue to dominate the lower river catches.
Stanley beat owner Francis Jennings with a cracking summer salmon from the Horsey Pool on the Fly.
Hopefully the river will remain settled and continue to drop for this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.

The middle river reported 13. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats but more settled water levels would help. The middle beats are seeing more grilse now, which is promising. Newtyle, Dalmarnock and Dunkeld House had some fish during the week with hopefully more to come. More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 13 were reported, which is slightly disappointing after the sizable run up there recently and the fresh water.
The count at the ladder in Pitlochry is now over 5150, which is superb news for future years.

The Isla reported 0.

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.
