Crag Lough: On-line booking system now available

The on-line booking system for boats on Crag Lough is now active. Full deatils at

Please be aware of the Covid-19 restrictions when making a booking. These are:

1. Members booking boats are responsible for sanitising the boats, oars, covers etc. both BEFORE and AFTER use and MUST take their own sanitising fluid/spray, cloths, gloves etc. in order to do this. 

2. Only 1 person per boat please unless from the same household when 2 people are allowed. Because of the size of the boats members may find 1 person per boat makes fishing more comfortable and is recommemded.

3. It is strongly recommended that members take and wear their own buoyancy aid.

4. For members not aware the boats are moored slightly offshore so it will be neceassry to wade out to get to the boats and pull them to shore. So please take waders for this. Wellingtoms are not sufficient.

Latest fish counts

The latest fish counts for June have been added to the system. Again there are no figures for the Tyne due to the fish counter being out of operation. We do know that fish are going through as members have had some success on our beats, and members are having success on the Wear, Coquet and the Fenton, Ford and Etal and Shellacres on our Till beats.
