The famous Dalmarnock Beat of the River Tay is yet another absolute hidden gem of a Scottish salmon fishery which has got way too much going for it for this brief presentation report.


The meandering composition of this lovely River Tay salmon beat means that running salmon stop and can be caught at any time of the fishing season. Plenty of fine salmon are caught on Dalmarnock in the Spring & Summer months including a recent 31lbs 'springer' even though this beat is not currently heavily fished during these months. When late Summer & Autumn arrives this quality middle Tay venue fills up with resident salmon throughout its varied and long pool formations.

Salmon can be caught throughout the entire River Tay salmon fishing season on Dalmarnock and there’s always salmon present in this productive beat in all of its beautiful pool locations. Head Ghillie & expert salmon fisher Colin McFadyen does an excellent job of keeping the beat and fishing hut in tip top shape and making sure his fishers are always enthused and focussed on the best fishing areas.

The Dalmarnock Beat benefits from superb fly fishing pools along with deeper spinning water too so both fishing methods are permitted and there is a vast amount of mainly single left bank fishing space even when the beat is at full rod capacity. Two 16ft clinker built River Tay salmon boats are also available for hire with either Colin of one of his highly experienced ghillie team for those who like traditional River Tay boat fishing.
