Professional salmon fishing guide advice regarding what week days fishing is permitted for salmon in Scotland and other useful information.
Under old Scottish law it is forbidden to fish for salmon on Sundays in Scotland. All other week days are fine for salmon fishing subject to written permission (a permit) 'within' the often differeing salmon fishing river seasonal dates on Scotland's 400+ salmon rivers. Permit sales are supplied individually by each river section (beat) owner and vary in price based usually on the catch record and the beat service levels on offer.
There is currently no requirement for a fishing licence (in addition to the permit) on any Scottish riverbank that is located within the Scottish boundary border.
