Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 3rd September 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 3rd September 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 3rd September 2011.
The last 3 days of August and first 3 days of September on the Tay was again encouraging with better conditions giving the river another good week despite difficult conditions at the end of the week with rising river levels. 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 remains remarkable.

The river temperature settled around 58 degrees Fahrenheit or 14 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions.

321 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 269 fresh salmon were caught. The lower river is consistently producing as the conditions improve and the river level drops. Almondmouth had another good week with daily catches up to 14 salmon and all the lower beats have picked up fish on a regular basis. That seems to be the general opinion of everyone this year as we continue to see a run of top quality salmon. The grilse are still absent in any number.
Tom Jennings had a good week at Stanley landing a few salmon.
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 38. The current conditions are at last favouring the middle beats with more settled water levels. 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 21 were reported, which was an improvement from recent weeks after the current spates and fresh water as the salmon filter up to the upper beats.
Dalguise had their best week so far this year for Dalguise with 9 Salmon & 1 Sea Trout caught. The best fish of the week fell to Colin Scott with a 15 pounds salmon on a Rapala.
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 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.
