June 2019 fish counts

Latest figures

The figures for our major rivers have been added to tbe fish counts although a bit later than normal. The Tyne is roughly on par for 2018 but a lot lower than 2016 and 2017 but healthy enough. The figures for the Wear are slightly disappointing but it appears the fish counters are not wuite working as they should be. One bright spot is the Coquet with over 1000 fish coming through in June so hopefully this river will continue to improve.

Hard to catch

Our rivers all appear to have a very good head of sea trout in them at present but boy they are certainly probing hard to catch. As usual in this warm weather the best time to fish is early morning or late evening. Tight lines people.

The Start Fishing

Previously members have been requested to report any migratory caught on the day of capture to committee member Dave Charlton. This has now changed and any catches should be repoted to Jim Irving either by phone or through the clubs email. As always your assistance in this item will be greatly appreciated.
