The new brood stock collection programme is working very well. Some 30 fish were caught and kept by anglers in 2000 and from the very beginning of the 2001 season anglers have been donating fish. It was announced at the opening of the 2001 season that a new hatchery would be up and running by the end of the season. Refurbishment of the Pitlochry Dam site proved impossible due to health and safety considerations. Dr David Summers has investigated a potential hatchery site close to Killiekrankie which also has cold water from a burn. Planning permission has now been granted for this site.

Over the past 3 years anglers have raised over £30,000 towards the hatchery at the opening celebrations in Kenmore. Funds were initially channeled towards the Tay Foundation, but the apparent lack of action from this organisation prompted anglers to route funds instead to the Tay Ghillies Association. The Association has been highly proactive in getting things going and is working closely with the Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board. It looks at last as if we will get the new hatchery and that it will be used mainly to enhance spring salmon stocks.
