Overview

Dunkeld House Fishing is situated immediately up stream of Thomas Telford's 200-year-old bridge. The beat is set within stunning surroundings with 2 miles double bank, overlooking Dunkeld Cathedral and the fabulous Cathedral Stream which is classic fly water, with 17 named pools that suit both fly fishing, spinning and harling. It's easy to understand why this beat is so popular with visiting River Tay salmon fishers.

Salmon of 30lbs plus have been landed on Dunkeld House in recent years.

Dunkeld House Hotel is ideally located in the middle of the beat, with 4 star facilities, set in its own arboretum of magnificent trees.

Water conditions permitting, two boats and 2 ghillies work the beat, offering every type of Salmon Fishing for guests enjoyment.

This location offers tuition for the novice and informative advice on flies/lures/lines etc for those that require if needed.

Dunkeld House Fishing can accommodate up to 4 bank anglers daily on the beat, with up to a further 4 rods boat fishing, 2 in each boat.

Fishing normally commences for all rods at 9am, It's requested all anglers to arrive by 8:45am, so there is time to show the bank anglers the water and best advise, give help on best method and tackle for height of water before the boat goes out with it's clients all rods have a chance to fish rested pools.

For safety reasons only one person can fly fish from the boat at a time.

The use of both banks allows the angler access to uncongested water even in lower water conditions, but nearly all bank angling is from the left bank.

Boat fishing has to be booked for two people fishing in the same boat. If only one person wants to fish, they still have to pay for both rods to cover the cost of the ghillie and boat provided. For safety reasons only one person can fly fish from a boat at any given time, for the safety of all concerned!

Lunch is between 1- 2pm with all rods off the water for that hour. 

Dunkeld House Fishing will endeavour to do their best to help you get a fish and enjoy your visit.
