This Beautiful Middle Tay Salmon Beat Has To Be One Of The Most Perfectly Positioned Yet Under Fished Middle Tay Salmon Fishing Venues Of All Time.

I could honestly write a book on this individual Tay salmon beat having previously been in charge of the fishing operation for a number of years. Seldom will you find a more interesting multi dimentional salmon fishing venue on any Scottish river as to what you'll find on Upper Kinnaird.

If you study the geographics of this middle Tay beat you'll see it encompases a junction pool, 2 rivers, very deep holding pools and streamy fly fishing water. Technically it has the lot from a salmon fishing point of view and one of the most luxurious & perfectly elevated salmon fishing huts on the entire River Tay system.

Head Ghillie Martin Edgar has over a decade of professional salmon fishing experience on Upper Kinnaird and is well versed in identifying all the likely taking areas as dictated by the daily prevailing water conditions.

From the start of the River Tay salmon fishing season in mid January early running Spring salmon are present in Upper Kinnaird's perfect salmon pools. You simply cannot have this type of river composition with the prolific River Tummel Spring salmon fishery entering the Tay without salmon being present.

This beat has something special and caters for all varieties of salmon fishing from traditional boat harling & trolling to dedicated fly or spin fishing tactics. I've personally enjoyed some great years on this Tay beat and it never failed to surprise me how salmon could be caught at any time of the season due to the diverse nature of its salmon holding pools.

Upper Kinnaird benefits from having an extra 1 mile of water from the Balnamuir Burn to Ballechin Island on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays during season 2020 which offers a great additional salmon water for either harling in high water or trolling during low water conditions.
