Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 16th July 2011. River Tay

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 16th July 2011.nd River Tay.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 16th July 2011. River Tay.
The second 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 middle of the week and then went pear shaped on Saturday after yet more torrential rain. Hopefully the river will remain settled from the recent rain and give us good prospects for this coming week. One encouraging report was the first few grilse being seen and caught and the start of a run of top quality summer salmon.

The river temperature settled around 59 degrees Fahrenheit or 15 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

71 salmon were reported last week and 7 sea trout.

On the lower river 40 fresh salmon were caught. The river temperature is coming up now encouraging the salmon to run hard. The lower beats caught a few salmon over the week but this should improve if the river drops further in the coming week. It was the first week back for the lower beats but the massive spates continue to scupper chances. Islamouth continues to be the most productive area on the lower Tay but the other lower Tay beats continue to produce as the summer salmon start to run the river.

Action from the lower Tay at Benchil just below Stanley.
Hopefully the river will remain settled 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 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 now exceeds 4700.

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.
