Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 22nd October 2011.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 22nd October 2011.

River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for week ending 22nd October 2011.
The first 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 remain settled for the current week and give us good prospects for the coming days with a reasonable weather forecast.

The river temperature has dropped to around 46 degrees Fahrenheit or 8 degrees Celsius giving the river favourable conditions but may drop with colder weather coming.

163 salmon were reported last week.

On the lower river 128 fresh salmon were caught. The lower river is consistently producing however with difficult conditions last week 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. A 32 pounds autumn salmon was caught at Ballathie although not registered and a sea liced 25 pounds fish was caught at Luncarty.
Hopefully the river will remain settled and continue to drop for this coming week, which should make for excellent prospects and improved catches.
25 pounds sea liced autumn salmon from Luncarty Pool.
A fresh run sea liced salmon caught at Stanley on ther lower Tay.

The middle river reported 27. 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. More information from this area would be welcome to expand on this report in the future.

On the upper river 4 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.
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 4 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.
