The salmon fishing season in Scotland varies by district. For the
Tay district, it is from 15 January until 31 October. As there are
several regional variations to this, we will keep you right if we
arrange fishing for you outwith the Tay ‘jurisdiction.
The Brown Trout Season is from the 15th of March until the 6th
There is no closed season for rainbow trout as they are not an indigenous
species to the United Kingdom and they can be fished for all year
A number of commercial fisheries are now staying open over the
winter months and rainbow trout fishing can be found throughout
the year, weather permitting.
Coarse fishing and sea fishing is also permitted all year round.
There is no national rod licence required in Scotland as there
is in England and permits for most of the river systems can be obtained
from our tackle shop or at the hotel.
Commercial fishery permits are usually obtained on site at the
appropriate fishing hut or Lodge or shop.
