Salmon Fishing Scotland 2014 Summer Spate on the Tay, Perthshire, Scotland.

Salmon Fishing Scotland 2014 Summer Spate on the Tay, Perthshire, Scotland.

Currently the river is in full spate after the horrendous weekend weather caused by a deep low pressure with the chance of some more rain but hopefully will settle in the next few days of the coming week (approx 8 to 9’ on the Ballathie gauge during Monday). Lower river levels in the coming days should enable the river to be fished and hopefully a stronger run will produce some top quality fishing and allow fish to run further to enable catches to continue to spread. A further plus point are the high tides this week with the full moon. The weather is looking reasonably settled over the next few days with a chance of some rain that should benefit the river and give a great chance of producing some good sport and some summer "Bars of Silver”.

The 2014 salmon season in Scotland, Europe and Iceland has not been one to remember so far. Atlantic salmon stocks are relatively low so the importance of Catch and Release is vital to continue our enjoyment of this superb sport for the future. Currently on the Tay the majority of anglers with odd exceptions are achieving this. We had a superb spring run and catch last season, which may just be down to the majority of anglers returning salmon over the past seasons. This year catches have fallen dramatically so emphasizing the importance of catch and release is absolutely crucial. Retaining hen salmon is a strict no no and any angler doing so should not be allowed on our rivers.

Thank you to all anglers who have returned their spring salmon to maintain our sport for the future, but this should be extended to the summer and autumn now as catches have dropped to new lows, it is vitally important and is a great contribution by individuals who care for their sport and the river. Well done!
