Salmon Fishing Scotland Tay, Perthshire Salmon Fishing Report for W/E 31st January 2015.

Salmon Fishing Scotland Tay, Perthshire Salmon Fishing Report for W/E 31st January 2015.

The January salmon fishing on the Tay in Perthshire has now been completed with good conditions for fishing in very cold weather and settled water levels however the catches have been disappointing so far. Expectation is high on the river for 2015 after successful springs in 2014 and 2013 and hopefully settled weather will continue with an improving run in February to give everyone a chance of landing a spring “Bar of Silver”.

Spring salmon were landed last week despite the cold weather and fortune favoured those who braved the elements in some cases. The week proved hard work with only odd fish landed. It is early yet with only small runs coming into the river and very cold weather is not making fishing easy. The spring fish that have been caught so far have been superb quality and of a good size. There seems to be a lack of kelts as well which maybe reflects the poor autumn run and early big spates.

The majority of the salmon have been caught in the lower river, which is understandable with the cold conditions and only odd fish running. The beats around Stanley traditionally lead the way in these conditions in early spring and should be a barometer for the runs. Taymount and Stobhall have continued their reasonable start with a few fish last week.
Alan Chapman caught his second spring salmon of the season with a 14 pounds fish from the Linn pool on a Toby. Stobhall caught a couple from the Linn pool also on Wednesday with
Neil Glencross being the successful angler. Ballathie had a superb 19 pounds fish to open their spring account and further upstream
Meikleour caught a cracking 18 pounds fish on Thursday from Isalmouth. Dunkeld House continued their good start with another fish last Monday.
Coupar Grange caught their first of the season with a Polish guest being the successful angler.

The Spring Salmon fishing was well and truly underway after all the excitement of opening day’s celebrations. It has been a reasonable start so let us hope the season lives up to every ones expectations over the coming weeks and months. Tight lines!
