When to fish

The Salmon Season varies from river to river with the earliest starting in mid January and the latest closing at the end of November.

Best times are usually in the late spring and early autumn but there are many rivers that thrive in the summer as well.

Where to fish

Scotland's big four salmon rivers are:

Spey - Home of Speycasting and in the heart of Whiskey country

Dee - The classic spring salmon river on Royal Deeside

Tay - The largest salmon river in Scotland

Tweed - The most prolific river in Scotland

However Scotland has so much more in the way of excellent medium and small rivers and indeed salmon fishing in lochs as well.
