Salmon Fishing - River Teith  Scotland

O. S. Map 57

The River Teith is undoubtedly the best salmon river in the Forth-Teith system and one of the best in Central Scotland. Originating in Loch Venachar, it is joined by the Leny just above Callander to form the Teith proper. From Callander, all the way to its confluence with the Forth just above Stirling, it flows through lovely country via some very sought-after beats providing excellent spring and autumn salmon fly fishing.

The most accessible of the beats is the Callander Town water, administered by Stirling District Council. Permits are issued by James Bayne, Main Street, Callander. Downstream from here other more exclusive and expensive beats include those belonging to the following estates: Gart Estate, Cambusmore Estate, Lanrick Castle, Moray Estates, Blair Drummond Estate and Ochtertyre Estate. The Teith also has a reasonably good run of early sea trout, with the best of the sea trout fishing in May and June.


Salmon Fishing on the River Forth

Although the Teith is nominally a tributary of the Forth, the Teith is in fact the major river, and by far the most productive in terms of salmon and sea trout. Below the confluence of the two rivers, there is a productive stretch of fishing on the Forth down to the tidal water, which is administered by Stirling District Council, who make permits available to both local and visiting anglers. This stretch can get quite busy but some good salmon are taken, mainly on the spinner, although there is some good fly water too. Further upriver, fishing can be had on the Forth at Aberfoyle and Gartmore.

Map of the River Teith


The maps on this website have been reproduced with the permission of Collins Bartholomew. Please note that these maps may date back several decades. Much of the human detail will have changed but the character of the rivers and lochs, and the trout and salmon in them, will be much the same as they have always been.

In addition to the information provided here, I would recommend that anyone planning a fishing or walking trip in Scotland should equip themselves with a compass and the appropriate Ordnance Survey map. The most useful of the O.S. maps for the fisherman is the Landranger series, scale 1:50,000. For each of the lochs and rivers listed here, I have given the relevant O.S. Map number.
