Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for the Week ending 18th February 2012.

Salmon Fishing Scotland River Tay Salmon Fishing Report for the Week ending 18th February 2012.

The catches were quite slow this week again but the quality of spring salmon remained high with salmon caught up to 18 pounds in weight. There has been far less Baggots and Rawners this year and a good number of Kelts which has meant a good spawning season.

Good conditions prevailed for the week except for Saturday when the river rose rapidly from heavy rain in the west. Success was limited but the quality was again exceptional with more multi sea winter salmon landed. The river temperature was around 41F or 5C due to milder weather and this probably encouraged salmon to run and spread the catches. Salmon continue to be caught in the middle and Upper River with others caught and not registered meaning fish are running through and progressing upstream which encourages everyone.

20 salmon were reported last week with the best salmon of 18 pounds being landed on the Lower Kinnaird beat. Spring salmon were landed throughout the system from the Lower River to the Upper River. Newtyle continue to have success as the spring salmon run through the river. Jason Cruckshanks caught a superb 16 pounds salmon on Monday and on
Tuesday Mark Anderson caught his first ever salmon landing a lovely 8 pounds sea liced springer from the beat just below Dunkeld. Upper Murthly had 3 for the week up to 16 pounds. The Islamouth area has also been consistent this past week. There was another first salmon on the lower river at Taymount on Monday.
Matthew Voce landed a 16 pounds sea liced springer after a titanic battle in the Linn pool.
Ghillie Stuart Lean netting a spring salmon at Lower Redgorton.
Mike Bridges had a lovely 10 pounds salmon on Lower Redgorton on Saturday despite the rising water from the Hummel Hole.
The Loch has been producing a good few fish ranging from 22 to 12 pounds. More details of the catches from the Loch would be much appreciated.

Celebrate a Tay spring salmon with a Dalmore Tay Dram and contribute to the future of this mighty river as a percentage of the proceeds go to projects to improve the river.

Many thanks for all the pictures everyone sent me of opening week spring salmon and thanks to all who have sent me their individual fishing experiences over the last season on the river. I would be most grateful if you to do the same this season by emailing to be included in this report.
