Salmon Fishing - River Tummel Scotland

O. S. Map 52

The main section of the Tummel of interest to the salmon fisherman is the lower section from the outflow at Faskally Dam at Pitlochry to the junction with the Tay at Logierait. There are 22 named pools on this lower section, fished by a total of twenty rods.

Spring salmon can be up as far as the dam at Pitlochry from the start of the season but few will now be taken in the opening month. Numbers will build up over the next few months, with the best of the fishing in May. The best of the fly fishing water is in the lower section down towards the junction with the Tay. Visitor permits are available at reasonable cost for the Portnacraig beat, controlled by Pitlochry Angling Club. Permits are also available for the trout fishing on the Tummel, which can be excellent.

Map of the River Tummel

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.
