Scotland in April?

I may be over in Scotland at the end of April/beginning of May. How would the the salmon fishing be at that time? Any rivers/beats in particular?

They'd be the folks to talk to regarding rivers, hot times to fish, flies to have ready, etc.

Have a good time. It's awesome over there!

The (mid) Dee should be at its best. Classic, beautiful, fly water.

The Tay could also be a good bet.

Perhaps just a little bit early for the Spey.

However this "spring" season, perhaps due to the terrible late winter, has been unbelievable bad so far ...

Yes, FishPal is a great tool for the visiting salmon angler.

Good luck.

The salmon fishing is always great in Scotland. Catching...hit or miss and depends on the usual factors. Fishpal to peruse the options. Dee is probably the best bet but who knows what anything will look like in 6+ weeks. As previously mentioned the run so far has been abysmal.
