There are over 400 salmon rivers in Scotland and many of these river systems or tributary rivers can be fairly difficult to access or often sold as multiple rod weekly lets. The larger more famous Scottish rivers like the Tay, Dee, Spey & Tweed are easier to access and are not as dependent on timing your fishing trip to coincide with recent rainfall levels which is the case on the many of the smaller Scottish spate rivers. The River Tay is the most centrally located salmon fishing river in Scotland being within 90 minutes of both Edinburgh & Glasgow.
These larger Scottish rivers are a safer bet for visiting salmon fishers due to their larger headwater catchments which maintain better consistent water levels.
