The world famous River Tay needs little introduction in salmon fishing circles. The River Tay runs through the heart of beautiful Perthshire and is arguably the most famous Salmon River in the British Isles. It is the longest river in Britain and is mighty not only in size but also in reputation. Annually the Tay produces over 6000 salmon and grilse. The Tay still holds the British rod caught record for the heaviest salmon, weighing in at a colossal 64lbs.
The River Tay offers great salmon fishing in Scotland throughout the season but especially during the spring months. From January to May the river has an excellent spring run and many of the fish are very large in size.
If you are looking to target big Scottish springers then there is no better place to do this than the River Tay. The spring run is improving each year on the river and the average size of the fish is also increasing.
With its breath taking scenery, awe inspiring power and consistent catches, the River Tay is a must for any keen salmon angler to experience. It truly showcases Scottish salmon fishing at its finest. In spring, there is an excellent chance of catching that big Atlantic Salmon, often a fish of a lifetime.
