The Tay is not just the lengthiest stream in Scotland covering 120 miles, it also has the biggest volume of water of any type of stream in the UK, making it much less water dependent to fish well compared to the majority of the salmon fishing streams in Scotland. With the spring runs starting from mid March it gives superb salmon fishing throughout the period. The stream begins it's quest from Loch Tay at Killin and travels through some lovely as well as incredible surroundings passed Kenmore, Aberfeldy, Dunkeld as well as Perth before reaching the Firth of Tay simply east of Perth where the river becomes tidal.
The springtime salmon run begins around mid March up until the end of May and also salmon can be found throughout the Tay system throughout the summertime. September advertises the fall salmon run which creates the biggest number of salmon at any moment throughout the period. The Tay produced the largest ever before pole apprehended, salmon in Britain which was captured by Miss Georgina Ballantine in 1922, considering 64lbs, and which still stays the British Record. There is now solid proof to suggest that the salmon are spending a longer time mixed-up and growing significantly larger before entering the river system which has had the result of creating countless salmon in extra of 30lbs or even some over of 40lbs. Approaches of fishing can be fly fishing, rotate fishing as well as harling (trolling) where there are watercrafts available. The season on the Tay is from the 15th of January up until the 15th of October although some beats have now extended this to the 31st of October albeit catch and release just.
