The Bolfracks Estate Salmon fishing on the River Tay offers some of the most reasonable and accessible water in the county. At the top of the salmon fishing beat is the junction of the River Lyon with the River Tay and as anglers know a confluence is always a top spot and this is no exception. In spite of being an upper beat, here, the angler has a good chance of a fish as many well know.
The Point Pool is well known locally and by many visiting anglers for its productivity and pleasure to fish. Many return year on year to take up its challenge. But there are many more pools on the two beats ranging from the fast flowing runs to deep holding pools where the bigger fish lurk. In all there are ten named pools stretching over close to three miles of water.
The fishing has now been divided into two beats which are fished in rotation by The Bolfracks Salmon Anglers syndicate and by Day Ticket holders. In this way every angler has a chance to fish this sought after water. Day Ticket Holders have access to the Upper Salmon Fishing Beat (Point) on Tuesdays Thursdays & Saturdays with access to the Lower Beat on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays.
The fishing is easily accessible, with plenty of parking spaces. There is a basic fishing hut at the Point, which offers shelter in inclement weather.Fishing Permit costs:
