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:
- Home of Speycasting and in the heart of Whiskey country
- The classic spring salmon river on Royal Deeside

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