Dalguise Beat - River Tay

The Dalguise Beat is a consistently productive and accessible double bank beat on the middle Tay, extending 1.25 miles of double bank fishing. Dalguise lies amongst some of the most breathtakingly attractive countryside to be found in Highland Perthshire, with rich farmland, wooded hills and magnificent views to the distant mountains. The beat lies 5 miles north of Dunkeld and is reached via the A9 trunk road.

Dalguise fishing forms some of the most impressive and respected salmon fishings on the middle Tay. With Kinnaird sitting up river and Dalmarnock down river, it provides some excellent holding water and has a productive catch record. The beat stretches from Kincraigie Burn to Rotmell and marches with the Dalmarnock Beat. It is fishable both by boat and wading, as well as from the bank, over which there is excellent access. There are many pools and streams on the beat, including: Guay Pool, Tail of Guay, Boils, Flats, Casting Platform, Neck of Bridge Pool, Tail of Bridge Pool, Dowally Stream, Calum's Corner, Island Pool, Tail of Island, Neck of Otterstone, Otterstone, Tail of Otterstone, Sarah's Spot.

The fishing is normally let as a six rod beat with a further two proprietors' rods being retained. Depending on water height, fishermen divide their time between fishing from a boat, by wading or fishing off the bank. The salmon season runs from 15th January to 31st October annually, excluding Sundays.  To complete a booking form click here.

Dalguise offers an excellent lunch hut, built in 1978, in a traditional style of pine with felted roof. The hut is raised above the river and from its veranda there are magnificent views of the upper beat and surrounding countryside with hilltops in the distance. The interior is very atmospheric with records and memorabilia of many exciting days on the water from years gone by.
