Salmon fishing in Scotland

Join us at Dalmarnock Fishings, where you’ll have unrivalled access to the finest salmon fishing in Scotland. You’ll be fishing the largest beat on Scotland’s famous River Tay, with its resident ghillie as your guide. Whether you’re visiting as a solo angler or travelling with family and friends, you’ll understand why we’re renowned both for our leaping salmon – and for our Scottish hospitality.

Join us for a week, a weekend, or a day on the river, and cast a line in springer country.

Tay fishing for every angler…

Our beautiful stretch of the River Tay covers nearly three miles and has 15 pools with superb fly fishing and spinning water. Easily accessible from low-set riverbanks, you can fish with us whatever your age or ability. Professional tuition, fly fishing courses and fishing tackle hire are all available on-site. We’ve got just the spot for you if it’s your first time fishing, or if you’ve been casting lines all your life.

Our luxury fishing lodge is equipped with everything you need to make your time on (and off) the river comfortable. Complete with wood burning stove, cooking facilities and a fabulous decking area that overlooks the water – it’s just the place to celebrate your latest catch!

Why choose Dalmarnock?

The mighty River Tay is the longest in Scotland and attracts anglers from all corners of the globe. Our beat is the largest on the Tay at just under 3 miles long, with 15 pools and some of the best spinning and fly fishing in Scotland. But you’ll always be able to find your way around because Colin has been guiding anglers on this river for nearly two decades.

Colin McFadyen is the ghillie here and he knows his river inside-out. When he’s not teaching a young angler how to cast their first line, you’ll find him helping other anglers search for their next trophy fish, or entertaining our guests around the fire with a few of his colourful ‘ghillie’s tales’.
