In 2021 Cargill anglers will fish
The Upper Beat on Monday, Wednesday and Friday

The Lower Beat Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday

Cargill is one of the best known and one of the most productive beats on the Tay. The beat is subdivided into two double bank beats, Upper and Lower, which anglers fish on alternate days. Cargill alternates with Ballathie. 

In 2021 Cargill anglers will fish 
The Upper Beat on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
The lower Beat on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. 

Week 1 to week 11 there will be one Ghillie on the beat. 
Week 12 onwards you will be accompanied by two Ghillies. 

There are two boats and a well appointed fishing hut on each beat with heating, hot and cold running water, cooking facilities and WC. 

Fly Fishing Tuition. Salmon fishing packages are available for those wishing to try salmon fishing, to the more experienced angler wanting technical help and intensive tuition through a full programme of learning to Speycast and how to fish for salmon with double handed rods.

The character of the Cargill starts on the upper beat with the Bridge Stream, this is ideal for fly fishing, a long stream which can be fished in almost any height of water. As there is deep water close in this stretch is easy to fish. Moving down the beat the water flattens out and flows over what might be best described as a shelf of sandstone rock which runs for nearly half a mile. This is highly deceptive though because under the apparently placid surface strong tongues of flow have worn deep holes in to the ledges of rock producing some of the most attractive lies for salmon on the Tay. Especially in lower water conditions salmon pack into this water and can be quite easily fished for by spinning or fly. Pools with such evocative names as the Pot Shot, Rumbling Stone, Cobble Croy, Clocksden and the Cradle have produced some of the greatest catches on the Tay.

If the water is low good catches can be made at all times of the year. 

Cargill adopts the Tay District Salmon Fishery Board Conservation Measures and anglers are reminded to follow these at all times.

Wed 22nd June

June is shaping up to be a real classic at Cargill. Between super fresh fish and reasonable water conditions we are getting fish most days. The quality of fish is second only to split fresh springers. We have catered for all abilities and all methods and are edging close to 100 fish for the season. The grilse are starting to show in numbers, so July coukd be a good one. Tight lines David
