Lower Kinnaird Salmon Fishing - River Tummel & Tay

Lower Kinnaird Salmon Fishing commences at the River Tummel road bridge (A827) incorporating the last three salmon pools of the River Tummel and down into the renowned Junction Pool where the River Tummel meets the River Tay. The beat extends a further 2 miles downstream and incorporates some of the best 'holding' fly water on the River Tay including famous pools such as Ferry Stream, Plantation, Swimming Pool, Island Stream, Green Bank, Ash Trees, New Pool, Fir Trees, Kindallachan & the Guay Pool.

Fresh run fish are present in the Kinnaird beat from January onwards due to the early run of Loch Tay salmon and the early arriving River Tummel salmon which back up in this magnificent beat throughout the Spring months. The fishing increases in potency from March onwards with more and more salmon seeking refuge in the unique pool formations Kinnaird is fortunate to benefit from.

The Head Ghillie Martin Edgar has worked on the Kinnaird water for 10 years, his understanding of the beat is second to none which compliments his enthusiasm and drive in delivering the perfect client experience. The fishing hut on Lower Kinnaird has full cooking facilities, hot and cold water, WC, fridge and freezer. The beat also holds a good stock of high quality fishing equipment should a client wish to hire fishing tackle.
