River Tay - Kenmore, Castle, Point and Bolfracks Beats

 

Spring fishing on the River Tay would appear to have improved somewhat over the last few years. The winter months at the head of the river saw consistantly high water, but nothing like the floods seen on the lower beats.

So far 15 salmon have been taken from the Kenmore Castle Point and Bolfracks beats:

All the fish caught up to May have been fresh run and mostly sea liced. They have been taking the fly with gusto, even quite large flies.

The first two weeks of May have seen incredibly bright weather. The odd fish has been seen going through including one very large 30+ fish seen in the Chinese on its way to the headwaters and stopping for nothing! Fishing is best early morning or late evening. The river has now dropped to summer levels and we could do with another break in the weather to encourage the next run which usually appears at this time of year.
