Atholl Estates – River Tilt

Day ticket salmon fishing on 2000 yards of the the River Tilt Perthshire offered by Atholl Estates.

The headwaters of the Tilt serve as important spawning grounds for the Tay River system, and the Tilt normally enjoys a consistent and strong run of salmon from July through to the season close in October. Each beat provides double bank fishing for 3 rods along about 2000 yards. The water forms a series of shallow pools with the occasional deeper holding pool.

Although the Tilt is a very productive water, guests who are unfamiliar with it are well advised to hire the services of a ghillie for at least their first day.  Contact details for a ghillie can be obtained at the time of booking.

    This is a tiny little water and varies from narrow rushing gorges to typical pools. Its fantastic for spawning. Late in the season salmon concrugate in the deeper holes. Best tackled with a short rod. Fish will often be dark as its well up .. so best to put them back. Fabulous scenery and many of the pools are reasonably close to the track. The estate recommends a ghillie. If its your first trip.. take their advice!
