Current and proposed Kielder releases can be found at the following address :- this page
Catches have been very well spread and there is a good head of both salmon and sea trout in the system with some fresh fish still being encountered Most fish have been landed on fly but spinners have taken fish
in higher and more coloured water too. There have been a mixture of fresh and coloured fish with some fine cock salmon in their full spawning colours now becoming more aggressive and willing to take the fly.
Many fish encountered will be on their way to getting ready for spawning and should be handled as little as possible and carefully returned. Anglers should be fishing with line strong enough to land and return
these big fish quickly. Red flies can do particularly well at this time of year and fishing singles can reduce the frustration and number of leaves encountered on windy days!
