Here's a lovely late Spring shot of an angler out on the River Tay's tributary River Tummel which has always been a great Spring salmon venue. Knowing where to be positioned on the Scottish rivers throughout the long Scottish salmon fishing season is half the battle for success.
Unleash your appreciation of the great outdoors on a Scottish salmon river with a fly rod in your hand. Nothing beats that scenario especially with the added chance of heart racing contact with the ultimate gamefish of all being a distinct possibility.
Each of Scotland's 400 plus salmon rivers have their own individual kind of special magic. None more so that Perthshire's famous River Tay which is Scotland's largest and deepest salmon fishing river. The Tay Valley around the area of Dunkeld & Pitlochry is certainly one of the most desirable salmon fishing areas in the whole of Scotland.
The River Dee up in Aberdeenshire is indeed another Scottish flagship salmon river which has immense natural beauty. The Dee's boulder strewn riverbanks and fast flowing pool necks create the perfect stepped salmon river terrain for stopping even the hardest running salmon.
There's many fine Spring salmon in the River Tay during the early less popular Spring months of January, February & March. It's amazing to me that with warmer global temperatures everyone knows about that the vast majority of salmon anglers still wait for the traditionally warmer months of April & May before they go salmon fishing!
There's nothing that compares to catching a perfect fish like this on a perfect day during early Summer. Many fine fish like this are caught each year on the River Tay between the Perthshire towns of Dunkeld & Pitlochry.
The River Tay in beautiful Perthshire is indeed one of Scotland's most famous and consistent salmon fishing destinations. This river fishes from mid January to mid October making it one of the most accessible Scottish salmon rivers of all.

There's nothing that compares to the sheer natural beauty of a fresh run Scottish Spring salmon. This is the best time now to be identifying your Spring salmon fishing dates as the Spring months are the most in demand these days due to the presence of these fine fish.
The Spring months of the Scottish salmon fishing season are indeed the best period of the year to intercept one of Mother Nature's finest ever creations. Nothing betters the splendour of a fresh run Spring salmon.
There's some of the very best River Tay salmon fishing to be found in the area between Dunkeld & Pitlochry in the River Tay Valley. These Perthshire towns also have many excellent hotel & B&B accommodation options for visiting salmon anglers.
Personally I love a flicker of sunlight on the water through the early Spring salmon fishing months in Scotland. That sunlight brings an element of warmth that assists salmon movement when the river has been running cold through January, February & March.
