Notes on figures:    
         
1 2003 onward Angler numbers fishing the Rattray Bank increased after BRDAA gained permission to create a car park. This trend continued, and as fewer anglers fished from the Blairgowrie side so paths became overgrown limiting access, with more anglers fishing the Rattray Bank and consequently decreasing returns for the Blairgowrie bank.
2 2004 onward BRDAA introduced advisory salmon conservation guidelines from the TDSFB .
3 2013 onward BRDAA no longer have access to Rattray bank and can only fish from Blairgowrie Bank.
         
Advice and Guidance to Anglers (2015 Season)    
  Anglers are advised that although Association members and guests no longer enjoy fishing rights on the Rattray Bank, the effect on fish catches should be limited. The Association is currently progressing with riverbank clearance work to improve access to pools from Blairgowrie Bridge down to the end of the beat at Kitty Swansons bridge. As we "share" the river with the syndicate owners guests on the opposite bank, we ask all BRDAA members and guests to show courtesy to fellow anglers whilst fishing the river. We remind anglers that traditionally they may wade to halfway across the water to cast to the opposite bank but casting into their own bank from the middle of the river is not permitted.
