Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 23rd July 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 23rd July 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 23rd July 2011.
The third week of July on the Tay was much better despite torrential rain and unsettled conditions at the start of the week but conditions improved for the rest of 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 57 degrees Fahrenheit or 14 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

109 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 82 fresh salmon were caught. The lower river is now starting to produce results as the conditions improve. Almondmouth had an excellent week considering the conditions and all the lower beats have started to pick up fish on a regular basis. This was typified by Lower Redgorton with Rupert Monier-Williams catching 2 lovely fish on Tuesday on a flying C.

Youngster Peter Marsh caught his first 2 salmon on the Pitlochrie beat with the largest weighing 13 pounds. Later in the week Tom Jennings landed a superb 14 pounds salmon on Benchil on a flying C. Stobhall had a good week and on Taymount Brian Giles had a good salmon on Saturday from the boat on the fly.
Ballathie and Cargill continued to do well and Islamouth produced a good few as normal.
On the Stormont Club water at Scone the conditions improved and success was evident.
Jason Stratton
Neil Tong
Local anglers Neil Tong and Jason Stratton both had good salmon on Saturday up to 15 pounds. 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 18. The current conditions are favouring the middle beats but more settled water levels would help. 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 9 were reported, which is slightly disappointing after the sizable run up there recently and the fresh water. On Dalguise ghillie Stan Pelc has been boosting the tally this past week landing 3 salmon with the best being an 18 pounds fish on a Salmo from the Bridge pool on Friday evening.
The count at the ladder in Pitlochry must be near 5000.

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.
