Taymount Beat - River Tay

In 2022 Taymount anglers will fish the Upper Beat on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and the lower Beat on Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Stobhall do the reverse.


The water is very varied and has excellent streamy water, ideal for fly fishing in all but the biggest spates. There are also deeper runs and pools where salmon hold up in all waters. There is always a chance of fish on Taymount regardless of conditions, but a rise in the water offers the best opportunities of all. 

At the bottom of the Lower Beat the Tay narrows down into a rocky gorge, a long pool known as the Major's Cast well noted for producing huge fish for which the Tay was legendary. The river then spills through Campsie Linn, an awesome waterfall, into the Linn Pool, a phenomenal place reputed to the 90 feet deep! The setting is magnificent.

 Taymount is an excellent beat throughout the season. The Linn Pool is one of the best pools on the whole river in spring and in a cold spring fishing can be superb.  Especially if the river is high springers tarry in the Linn Pool and a catch is assured. The biggest catches however are made in the summer and autumn. As the season progresses this beat accumulates more and more fish offering glorious sport.


There are two superb ghillies on Taymount and on each beat there are two boats and a comfortable fishing hut which has cold running water, cooking facilities and WC.
