Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 20th August 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 20th August 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 20th August 2011.
The third week of August on the Tay was much improved with better conditions giving the river the best week of the season so far. Hopefully the river will remain settled for the current week and give us good prospects for the coming days. The grilse run is still weak but are being seen and caught but the run of top quality summer salmon is remarkable.

The river temperature settled around 56 degrees Fahrenheit or 13 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

377 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 321 fresh salmon were caught. The lower river is now starting to produce results as the conditions improve and the river level drops. Almondmouth had a superb week with daily catches up to 26 salmon and all the lower beats have picked up fish on a regular basis. Double figure days were also achieved on Luncarty and Taymount. Neil Barcock’s party from Cumbria had a successful week on Catholes and Luncarty, which included 14 on Luncarty on Tuesday.

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 35. 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. Most beats 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 20 were reported, which was an improvement from recent weeks after the current spates and fresh water.

The count at the ladder in Pitlochry is now over 6000, which is superb news for future years.

The Isla reported 0.

The Earn reported 1 from Lower Aberuthven.

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.
