Kenmore Hotel Pool

Kenmore Hotel Pool

This is the first pool on the River Tay and features in the Opening of the Salmon Season each year on the 15th of January. However this is also a great Trout holding pool and has a population movement into Loch Tay and from the Loch into the river. Depending on the food chain there always seems to be Trout on the move and some good specimens have been caught on both wet and dry flys. From the Kenmore Bridge down stream to the junction with the River Lyon, is under the permit scheme of the Taymouth Castle Angling Club. There is a strict size limit on the size and number of fish which can be retained and catch and release is the order of the day. It is advisable to make prior contact with permit sales outlets to ensure a day on this very popular pool and beat.
