Angling on the River Earn

The River Earn is known for its Sea Trout and Salmon fishing. It also holds good numbers of both Brown Trout and Grayling, particularly on the upper stretches.  Fishing is controlled by a number of Angling Clubs and Estates plus some private riparian owners.  Tackle shops, Newsagents and Tourist Information Offices in all the major towns and villages will sell day tickets, or know where they can be obtained. 

A number of clubs or beats have their own sites:

Comrie Angling Club
Crieff Angling Club
Trinity Gask
Lower Aberuthven

The statutory body that ultimately controls all salmon angling and biodiversity legislation within the catchment is the Tay District Salmon Fishery Board.
