Fishing trips in Tayside

Tayside, Angus & Perthshire are home to some of the finest salmon, sea-trout and trout Rivers in the World.

The world famous River Tay is revered by salmon fishing enthusiasts from across the globe and lays claim to the largest ever rod-caught salmon in the UK - a 64lb leviathan caught by Miss Georgina Ballantyne on the Glendelvine beat in 1922. The river’s main tributaries the Earn, Isla, Tummel and Ericht also provide excellent salmon fishing with the season running from 15th January to 15th October.

For loch fishing there is no shortage of excellent rainbow and brown trout fisheries within the region.

With prior notice, it may be possible for Richmond Apartments to arrange and schedule salmon and trout fishing – including tuition - to compliment your stay.
