Autumn Salmon Fishing


One Scottish river so far this year has consistently performed above all other rivers.

The Tay, known by many as the ‘mighty Tay’, has produced some exceptional sport this year for many of its visiting anglers, with outstanding catches and numbers registered on the FishTay system well above expectations. The season has seen catches increased by 75% for Spring, and May produced a 90% increase on last year’s figures. The river offers excellent fishing opportunities for all abilities and budgets. Don’t be daunted by the size of the river, pools can be covered from either bank or boat using the latest fly lines and rods.

The arrival of cooler weather, shorter days and a welcome fire in the fishing hut sees our thoughts turning to Autumn. There is something magical about fishing in Autumn; the beauty of a river only serves to heighten the thrill as your line tightens and the battle commences with a fresh run salmon.

Of all the major Scottish salmon rivers the Tweed historically has the most prolific Autumn run. The main run of salmon in the Tweed’s more recent history has occurred from September, with the last two seasons in particular witnessing impressive numbers of salmon spread throughout the system by early October. To fish this world-famous river at the back end in favourable conditions is to experience salmon fishing in Scotland at possibly its finest.

Throughout September and given the right conditions fish should begin to arrive en masse and push on through the sumptuous wooded valleys and rolling hills of middle and upper Tweed and its tributaries, where great sport can be enjoyed without breaking the bank. Autumn colours on Tweedside are as seductive as the river itself.
