Salmon Fishing in Scotland

   

Salmon Fishing in the North of Scotland

Those who find the large Scottish rivers like Tweed and Tay a bit daunting, who prefer the intimacy and variety of the smaller streams, will find much that appeals in the north. While there are some sizeable rivers like the Conon and Beauly, whose flow regime is now moderated by Hydro-electric schemes and therefore less dependent on rainfall, sport on most of the northern spate rivers of Scotland is very dependent on summer rain to bring salmon in from the sea. Some more accessible, some more affordable than others, renowned rivers like the Helmsdale, Thurso, Naver, Halladale, Dionard and Laxford can, on their day, provide salmon fishing unrivalled anywhere in the world...... for information on the salmon fishing in northern Scotland, see below:

Salmon Fishing in Central Scotland

Central Scotland has some of the best and most famous of all salmon rivers, including three of the big four - Spey, Dee and Tay. More than enough for starters..... but also many more lesser known but productive salmon rivers, from the Findhorn, Deveron, North and South Esk, Earn and Teith in the east to Loch Lomond, River Awe and Orchy in the west...... for information on the salmon fishing in central Scotland, see below:

Salmon Fishing in the South of Scotland

Not all the best salmon fishing is to be found in the highlands. Some of the most productive salmon rivers in Scotland lie to the south of the central belt. There's the Tweed, of course, where something in excess of 15,000 salmon were caught in 2004. Others worthy of attention are the Nith and Annan in the south and the Stinchar and Doon in the west, to name but a few...... for information on the salmon fishing in the south of Scotland, see below:
