latest news- Storm Ciara and Dennis certainly washed out any prospects of February salmon on our local rivers. Once the weather settles down members can expect sport on the Whiteadder and hopefully our lower main Tyne beats.
Levels have been too high even when a settled spell of weather has been with us albeit for odd days.
The excellent streams and glides on our Whiteadder beats offer the chance of beautiful spring fish on the fly.
Our lower main Tyne beats can also produce spring fish with Wylam offering the better fly fishing prospects subject to lower flows.
Bywell/ Merryshields Beat will have to drop considerably for any possible wading. Fly fishing from the bank is limited in higher flows. Spinning at present is the best approach.
I would advise members to bring spinning gear until levels settle down. The Bywell beat offers large areas where spring salmon can hold up. It is always worth a cast when levels are sensible. There are plenty quiet areas where fish can tuck in. Watch this blog for further updates as conditions improve.
LATE CATCHES NEWS
Our Redesdale Lake has produced some nice winter sport. Bill Reay has fished regularly and is averaging seven fish per visit. His best one to date was a 4lb plus rainbow. Hilary Drury caught a cracking 4lb brown trout.
In one of our later catch returns one of our local TAS members reported catching over 20 salmon to 18lb 7oz and 7 sea-trout to 6lb for the 2019 season. Right place right time!
Another interesting catch was by Dave Carne fishing our South Tyne beat at Bardon Mill. He caught a 17lb hen salmon which he returned on 26th September. The fish had a large distinctive black spot on one of the gill covers. He then caught the same fish again on 3rd October.
TYNESIDE ANGLERS SYNDICATE is still taking new members and those who wish to rejoin. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Pics below are all from the River Rede and all from the lower part of our fishing. There are many lovely pools and streams in this area. The mid to upper section of our fishing has many good holding pools for salmon and sea-trout. Some 3.5 miles of excellent water offering a superb environment in which to fish.
Wild brown trout to over 3lb have been caught in recent seasons as well as salmon to just under 20lb and sea-trout to around 8lb.
Tyneside Anglers Syndicate is welcoming new members for the forthcoming 2020 season. We offer some very good fishing on prime Northern rivers which include: Tyne and its tributaries, Coquet, Wear, Whiteadder and Ettrick.
For the price of a single day on rivers like Tweed, we offer a full season which stretches from 1st February until 30th November with trout fishing available all year round. Each season members catch some fine salmon, sea-trout, brown trout and Grayling. During 2019 salmon to 20lb have been caught as well as sea-trout to over 9lb, wild brown trout to 4lb and grayling to 4lb.
Returns are still coming in so there may be larger fish reported. Several of our members caught multiple salmon and sea-trout during their 2019 outings. Another 20lb salmon was reported in late November. These catches were spread over spring, summer and autumn visits to our waters.
Our waters are not heavily fished and are situated in superb surroundings with plenty good fly water. Fishing areas such as the main Tyne, Rede, North Tyne and South Tyne, anglers often remark that they had the water to themselves. Parking on our beats is also very good and many of our members make friends with new additions to our ranks.
We offer some very good and varied trout fishing for wild brown trout; as well as two stocked lakes and a further two wild lakes. The stocked lakes are open all year round at no further cost. Rainbow trout to over 5lb were caught in 2019 and grown on brown trout approaching this size have also been caught and released.
We will be operating a boat on our Coquetdale lake during the New Year, which will open up unfished areas of this super private lake.
Our main wild brown trout fishing is on the River Rede with access over four private farms with one bank covering well over 3.5 miles of enticing varied fishing. The fishing on offer, will please most trout anglers who love to fish for native wild brown trout. During 2019 our keen brown trout members caught some superb fish with a good number over 2lb. Catches approaching and even over 20 fish in a visit were reported. The potential of our wild brown trout fishing is far from being reached and most of our fishing offers interesting brown trout fishing..
As catch returns come in more multiple catches have been reported. One member caught three salmon of 13lb, 12lb and 10lb on our Page Bank Beat in the middle reaches of the River Wear.
Down at Low Grange also on the River Wear another member caught five sea-trout in a day.
We are opening up more of our Bywell Quarry beat before the new season. This beat in the past produced some really good catches.
Watch this blog for future pics of some of our waters. Throughout the 2020 season there will be regular updates concerning fishing and prospects etc to help visiting and local anglers alike. This will include reports on salmon, trout and sea-trout prospects etc. These reports will help anglers who live out of the region to visit when chances are much better. Please mention this website to any anglers looking to fish in our region.
Cost of membership is £295.
