Celebrities David Bellamy and Mark Stephen presenter of BBC television series Out of Doors will be in Kenmore this week for the opening of the River Tay Salmon Season. the Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board is urging the first salmon caught each day to be returned to the river in order to conserve stocks.
The BBC reported that:
John Milligan, chairman of the Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board, said: All rivers are having to deal with the problem of increasing mortality of salmon at sea, which is caused by factors beyond our control relating to climate change.
On the Dee over 90% of salmon caught by anglers are released and on the Spey over 70%.
There is absolutely no reason why Tay anglers should not achieve similar figures so that many million more eggs can be laid in the river.
Our Holiday Cottage apartments Perth overlook the Tay and are well placed for Salmon fishing.
