We have huge spates in all of our rivers as I write this report. Fishing is flooded off for the immediate future but once the levels fall and clear; there should be some fine fishing to be had.
Tyne rose to around 15 feet and there has been some flooding. Prior to this water, fish stocks were building up and members have been catching fish. One member had five sea-trout in a day and followed it with a grilse of 4lb. Plenty sea-trout ranging from 2lb plus up to 6lb have been caught on both fly and small spinning baits.
We have also been catching some very good brown trout. Fish to around 4lb have been caught on the Whiteadder as well as some fine grayling to 3lb on the Border Esk. This 3 lber was caught on our Longwood Beat on the Border Esk.
Double figure trout catches have been made by fly anglers and those spinning mepps for sea-trout. One rod had twelve in addition to five sea-trout returned.
Once conditions settle, salmon catches should begin to increase. Salmon have been caught and seen as far up as our Smalesmouth Beat on the North Tyne. Members should keep an eye on river levels as sometimes heavy releases of 15 to 16 cumecs are made. This means extra care when wading.
More acceptable releases in the range of 5 cumecs up to 9 make for excellent fishing conditions. Fly anglers should do well in the weeks to come on all our North and South Tyne fishing. The Rede should also see sport when levels fall. Flooding has occurred in some areas.
Our Wear beats should also figure in catches when levels fall and clear.
