Looking at the latest proposed category issued for the River Earn, 2020, this has reverted to Category 3 for 2020. As a result of the latest assessment, it is proposed that the grading of a number of rivers or groups of rivers will change for the coming year. Details of the assessment and of the proposed river gradings, can be found at the following link: Consultation and Application of Conservation Limits
Congratulations to PDAA anglers fishing Fishponds beat of the River Tay yesterday, catching 3 x Grilse and 1 x Salmon, well done.
Conservation of salmon – Assessment for the 2020 fishing season
I am writing to let you know that the Scottish Ministers propose to continue to regulate the killing of salmon in Scotland, including the prohibition on retaining any salmon caught in coastal waters, by means of conservation regulations made under section 38 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003.
Marine Scotland has undertaken an assessment of the conservation status of salmon in inland waters in Scotland for the 2020 fishing season. The outcome of that assessment, including proposed gradings for rivers and assessment groups in 2020, is available on the Marine Scotland website at
PDAA Catch and Release 2019
As has been stated previously, on the PDAA website and PDAA Facebook pages, the PDAA Catch and Release policy, is to follow the TDSFB recommendations, of returning all salmon, alive to the river during 2019 season. PDAA has always followed the TDSFB recommendations, regards catch and release.PDAA catch returns are displayed on the PDAA website and can be viewed by anyone interested.
To Fisheries Management Scotland members,
This is to provide you with a summary statement on the latest information on Pink salmon in Scotland. The key information is below, and I attach a graph to show the weekly comparison with 2017.
If you have any questions, please let me know. As before, our advice to anglers is that any pink salmon which are caught should be humanely despatched and retained. The Fisheries Management Scotland guidance provides more information.
