Chipchase Castle

Fishery

Chipchase is classic fly water. Spinning is not permitted unless you are under 12 years of age. The wading on Chipchase is generally easy. Fishermen are advised to use wading sticks at all times and advise themselves of releases from Kielder.

There is usually a good Sea Trout run in June and July and salmon run through from April onwards with the later part of the year being busier.

CHIPCHASE UPPER BEAT

Fished on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, not fished on Sundays.

Comogan

A shallow run with fish lying in the middle of the stream. Easy wading, start in the middle and then wade diagonally back to the home bank.

Crow Pool

Fished from the bank, a short 20 yard run with fish lying in the middle or nearer in.

Causeway

Stay on the dressed stone walkway and fish down a step at a time from start to end. You can fish down into the neck for a few yards. Do not fish if water is coming across the top of the walkway.

Top Straits

Get in by the white stick and wade down parallel to bank about 3 yards for about 50 yards downstream until slack water. The fish lie along the middle of the stream.

Bottom Straits

Enter pool at white stick, wade in a couple of yards and fish down to small croy. Then fish from end of croy. A good glide at the right height, fish lying in the middle and nearer in.

Top of Catherine's

Enter the river by the white mark and via the hand rail and then go in about 3 yards and wade down about 80 yards. A good long pool, with fish lying in the middle and taking in the head and in the tail.

Tail of Catherine's

Always fish from the bank. A nice steady glide. The fish lie in a very narrow area opposite the seat (Ghillies favourite). Below the fishing hut the water on the Chipchase side should not be fished and the hut marks the end of this part of the beat.

CHIPCHASE LOWER BEAT

Mill Stream

White paint signs mark the access. A very narrow stream with quite fast water requiring only a smaller rod. Some deep pools best fished from the bank. The whole wade covers 130 yards and is a heavenly spot that should be fished carefully.

Little Island

The head of the pool is fast. Wade up the back channel then fish down on the the other side of the island, wading down for about 80 yads. Fish lie in the middle and either side. The seat marks a good taking spot opposite.

Martigan

A steady glide, fish almost anywhere. Enter the pool at the white stone, wade in a few feet and then fish down parallel to the bank for 90 yards. Best in high water.

Strother Croy

Fish along the croy casting downstream and moving out a step at a time. Lovely glide.

Nunwick Mill Stones

Enter the river at the white post, wade out to middle and then diagonally back to home bank.

Ash Tree

Two short fast runs, stay close to the bank.

Bottom Salmon Pool

Not a high water pool, otherwise good in most conditions. Wade out a couple of yards and fish down stream - or can be fished from the bank. Fish take almost anywhere. No fishing below this pool - this is the boundary to Chipchase Fishing which starts again on the Barrasford beat (let separately).
