The River Tummel is the major tributary of the Tay renowned for its quality salmon fishing.

Current water level information can be obtained from the web-cam at Pitlochry.  The water level data obtained from this site approximates with our gauge up to the 3 Feet level. 

Sea trout fishing improved immensely with  July - Sept 2010 producing the best catches in 24 years.   Brown trout fishing commences  on the 15th of March on the Tay system and ends on the 6th of October.
