Prospects

Heavy rain is due tonight and tomorrow and this should continue to move resident fish upstream and also bring more fresh fish into the river systems. Some good fish have been caught of late on most of our river beats but we are disappointed at the returns so far from our two beats on the Till. Why the counts are so low we do not know and can only hope that the summer runs are just late and that we also receive a good autumn run. The rain may put the rivers out of action for a day or so and members are requested to check the river levels that are available on the site before having a wasted trip.

River Coquet

Members and regular readers of this site will be well aware that for some years now we have not been able to post any fish counts for the river due to the problems with the fish counters down at Warkworth. The EA have now installed a fish counter at Acklington dam, further upstream of Warkworth, and it is hoped that we will be able to receive these figures and place them on the site.
