    Default Rainbows On THE TAY


    There has been a large escape of rainbows from Loch TAY.
    Rainbows very sliver in colour have been seen and caught 4lb-12lb in size.
    SEEMINGLY it's not just a couple of hundred but thousands
    With a rise in water they will be scattered throughout the tay system.
    NOT GOOD.

    Ye better get them out quick before they start eating the Salmon fry. Doubt they will last the season though. Allys shrimp is a cracker for fresh escapees

    They should be pretty easy to catch. Knock em on the head instead of the salmon!

    Sorry never saw this thread so here is my answer as per your Tay thread. . . . . .

    Great point DB!!! It is the bane of amny a Tay fisher / Loch fishers life to see the cages.
    I have caught dozens of the buggers in the river / loch up to about 6lbs ish. Mind one year a boat came in and they couldnt even stand on the boards bar standing on fish. they actually ended up chapping them and throwing them over the sides. Side issue is that a 13g rap doesnt last too long getting pumped by greedy bows.
    I agree also they must have a right good feed. this lot escaped when spawning was going on so it were not bad enough on the upper Tay we have a multitude of useless, alien fish running amok among the eggs!"!!!!!

    Anybody know if the owner of the farm has officially reported an escape to Marine Scotland?
    You do not need to have a PhD to be a bad salmon fisherman but it helps.

    I was just wondering if the escape, whenever it happened, was reported. If so the farm would have been inspected. It is not illegal to have an escape of fish but it is illegal, I understand, if a farmer knows about it and fails to report it.

    Do Marine Scotland know about it?
