Salmon Fishing Scotland river Tay, Perthshire, Scotland Report for week ending 26th January 2013.

Salmon Fishing Scotland river Tay, Perthshire, Scotland Report for week ending 26th January 2013.

The river Tay got down to business as usual after the high exposure of the Opening ceremonies. The conditions last week were not for the faint hearted as severe weather swept into Perthshire with cold temperatures and heavy snowfall. These extremes reflected in the catch returns for the week with disappointing returns however with milder conditions now prevailing for a few days the river levels and temperatures have increased giving some renewed optimism for the coming week.
The Tay at Dalmarnock.

The Spring Salmon fishing was well and truly underway but as mentioned all ready catches were curtailed by the weather extremes with probably not many anglers venturing out to brave the elements. There were exceptions and some good spring salmon were landed throughout the system. Up on the Dalguise beat two spring salmon were landed during the week. On Wednesday Mike Stanners caught a 12 pounds springer fly fishing at the tail of the Island in the Otterstone pool and Gordon Stewart had a 9 pounds salmon, also on the fly from the same pool on Monday, a perfect star to the season for the beat. Further down river at Dalmarnock there was spring salmon landed on Saturday. The rest of the fish came from the lower river with Fishponds getting off the mark on Wednesday. It was a delighted Thomas Black with a cracking 8 pounds spring salmon caught from the boat on the lower Scone beat. On the same bit of water on Saturday, retired ghillie
Jock Tait secured the first spring salmon for the Upper Redgorton beat, a sea liced 8 pounds beauty. Further upstream, ghillie John Bennett caught his first spring salmon of the season on the Catholes.

It was certainly a week to remember weather wise and for the odd springer caught but now with more water in the river the spring catches should improve over the coming weeks.
