The River Earn

Sea Trout Fishing on the Earn

The River Earn flows eastwards from Loch Earn  to join the Tay estuary south of Perth. It is swollen by several tributaries on its way, the most notable being the Water of Ruchill, which is one of the few tributaries unaffected by either Hydro-electric schemes or water extraction. An attractive medium sized river, the Earn offers trout, grayling, sea trout and salmon fishing throughout its length, some through fishing clubs like those in Crieff, Comrie, Auchterarder and Dunning.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Earn

While the salmon run on the Earn occurs mainly in September and October, the sea trout are worth pursuing from May onwards, although numbers have declined dramatically in recent seasons. A normal year would now see in the region of 600 sea trout caught throughout the river and a similar number of salmon. See River Earn Fishing ; An August Night and A Good Night . Permits for the Comrie A.C. and Crieff A.C. waters are available locally. For more information, see the club links below. Day permits are also available at Kinkell Bridge, near Auchterarder.
