August 2019

Fish Counts

The fish counts for August have been added to our fish counter section. Bit grim the figures especially the Tyne which is down by circa 7000 on last year.

Members are still catching fish on our beats and our success at fish over the twenty pound mark continues with the guest of a member landing a 22lb salmon from our Dunterley/Ridings beat yesterday on the Tyne. That is now eight consecutive years that we have had at least one fish over the 20lb mark. 

Its that time

Of The Year

Just a gentle reminder to members fishing our Tweed and Till beats that it is now Fly Only for the remainder of the season.

Salmon, mainly grisle, and sea trout are still being caught by members on most rivers which is pleasing with the Tyne being the benificiary of some decent releases from Kielder reservoir assisting fish to move upstream.










Come fly with me

Fly is best just now

Pleasing to see that members are still bringing fish to the net. Grilse to seven pounds snd sea trout to six pounds are being caught from our Till and Wear beats and mostly on the fly. The Tyne is producing the odd salmon and sea trout with a few sea trout coming off the Coquet. Normally by now we should be seeing bigger fish entering the rivers but for some reason they are pretty scarce at present. The rivers have settled down at present and more rain is hoped for to freshen things up.
