Samon Fishing Rivers in Scotland - East Coast

Salmon fishing in Scotland is world renouned The four great classic salmon rivers all lie on the east coast, the River Spey and River Dee to the north, the River Tay in the middle and the River Tweed to the south. These are the largest of the east coast rivers and as such they tend to produce the largest numbers, the biggest fish and to offer both Spring and Autumn fishing as well as summer runs of grilse (immature salmon).

Of these great classic rivers the Tay and Tweed are closest to Edinburgh and Glasgow airports (just over and hour by road).

Big rivers can be quite daunting. To cover the water big rods are used (15-18ft fly rods) and local knowledge in the form of a ghillie or fishing guide is essential unless you have fished the water before.But these classic rivers are not the only venues for salmon fishing.

There are other very productive east coast rivers including the North Esk and South Esk, the Findhorn, Ness and Beauly.

 

West & North Coast - Spate Rivers

On the north and west coasts you will find mostly spate rivers. Such rivers fish best just after rain, so you have to be there at the right time. Being shorter, such rivers rarely produce the leviathans such as Miss Blantynes record 63lb Tay fish, but there are exceptions. The River Nith for example produces not only some big salmon, but also has a run of Spring salmon.
