Chipchase Riverhill is a very attractive beat on the North Tyne. The inviting riverbank has good natural cover with well-maintained angling access. It is approximately one and a half miles long with 7 named pools. The beat is fished by a maximum of three rods, ensuring quiet enjoyment of the river. There is good vehicle access to most of the pools.
Spinning is not permitted unless you are under 12 years of age.
A very pleasant pool of unbroken water which fishes very well with the fly.
Enter the river 20 yards above the bench and wade in about 3 yards. Initially, cast a medium line and cover the near hand water, before gradually extending the line to cover the centre of the stream and beyond. Fish down for about 50 yards, use a wading stick.
Fish from the bank on a big water, or otherwise wade in above the seat and fish down to where the run breaks.
Fish lie mainly under the far bank.
A shallow but productive pool, with good fishing throughout given water. The hot spot is under the gauging wire. The wading is over large stones; come out by the steps at the gauging station. It is possible to fish this pool from the bank or the visible groups of stones. A stick is essential when wading.
A deep holding pool, must be fished from the bank, starting 15 yards above the hut and then down to the end of the bank reinforcement.
A nice glide, fish take opposite the small bench and in the tail when they are running.
A lovely head of pool, the flow easing after about 15 yards. Wade in no more than 2 yards or fish from the bank. Fish lie in the middle of the stream and take all the way down to the tail. There is a hot spot in the glide between two stones.
A lovely head of pool slowing down after about 15 yards.
Wade in no more than 2 yards or bank fish. Fish lie in the middle of the stream and take all the way down right into the tail.
This marks the beat boundary.
A fast head slowing down quickly. Wade in along the old dam on its downstream side until opposite the head of the pool.
Wade back to the bank on a diagonal. Then re-enter 10 yards below the seats and wade in for 2 yards, fish down for 30 yards. Fish take opposite the seat and elsewhere.
Need a wading stick, not easy wading.
This marks the boundary to the Riverhill fishing.
