The Bolfracks Estate Fishing Beats on the River Tay in Perthshire, Scotland offer some of the most reasonable and accessible water in the county.

At the top of the salmon fishing beat is the junction of the River Lyon with the River Tay and as anglers know a confluence is always a top spot and this is no exception. In spite of being an upper beat, here, the angler has a good chance of a fish as many well know.

The Point Pool is well known locally and by many visiting anglers for its productivity and pleasure to fish. Many return year on year to take up its challenge. But there are many more pools on the two beats ranging from the fast flowing runs to deep holding pools where the bigger fish lurk. In all there are ten named pools stretching over close to three miles of water.

The two beats regularly produce around 50 salmon a year.
The fishings are divided into two beats which are fished in rotation by The Bolfracks Salmon Anglers syndicate and by Day Ticket holders. In this way every angler has a chance to fish this sought after water.

The fishings are easily accessible, with plenty of parking spaces. There is a basic fishing hut at the Point, which offers shelter in inclement weather.

Every year a lucky angler tangles with a 20 lb + fish from these beats. 


To get here from the A9, turn at Ballinluig off towards Aberfeldy which is 10 miles along the A827.

TheLower Beat fishings are located about half a mile to the west of Aberfeldy.

The Upper Beat fishings are about 3 miles further along.

There are parking places along the Lower Beat, and a track leads to the fishing hut on the Upper Beat. 

The fishings are divided into 2 beats.
