Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 29th October 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 29th October 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 29th October 2011.
The last full week of the late October experimental fishing on the Tay was reasonable despite fluctuating river levels and a maximum of effort to gain results. Hopefully the river will settle for the last day and let us go out on a high note.

The river temperature has dropped to around 46 degrees Fahrenheit or 8 degrees Celsius.

145 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 110 salmon were caught. The lower river is consistently producing however with difficult conditions last week with spate on Tuesday and rising water on Saturday the catches were again hard earned. The lower river produced a number of fresh salmon throughout the week, which was very encouraging for the extension experiment. There was also a continuation of large salmon being caught, which was another plus point. Stobhall and Islamouth had 22 pounds salmon during the week.
Hopefully the river will settle after the weekend spate for the last day.
A fresh late run grilse caught by Charles Gifford on the Catholes.

The middle river reported 24. The current conditions of higher river levels should push more fish up into the middle river. Most beats had some fish during the week with hopefully more to come. During the extension period fresh salmon continue to run into the middle river with the high water levels.
Jim McEwan with a lovely fresh autumn salmon caught at Kercock.
David Snowball with a fresh 15 pounds autumn run salmon from the Kercock beat on the middle river.

On the upper river 5 were reported, which was disappointing from recent weeks after the current spates and fresh water would have helped salmon filter up to the upper beats. Dalguise continued to have success, which was encouraging.
The count at the ladder in Pitlochry is now over 6500, which is superb news for future years.

The Isla reported 0.

The Earn reported 6 from Lower and Upper 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.
