Salmon fishing along the river Tay is extensively popular in the area of Perthshire. River Tay salmon is regarded as amongst the best in the world. Fishing excursions by boat and bank for salmon, brown trout and coarse fish are available almost all year round, with the main season running from January to October. Fishing opportunities for Salmon start just below Perth and permits are widely available. So, take your pick from one of the many stunning rivers, lochs and reservoirs.
Permits available from the local tourist centre and the council.
(N.B. it is a criminal offence to fish for Salmon without legal right or written permission. It is also not permitted on Sundays and in annual close times, which vary between Salmon fishery districts but are generally from about the end of August to mid- February).
