Last week

(Last Updated: Monday 04 October)

Water at last!! It really has been in short supply but the past week has seen several lifts in the South Tyne catchment and the North Tyne also got some water too on Saturday with some more forecast. In turn anglers were out and catches improved dramatically for a few days at least. Fingers crossed we can now enjoy some better conditions with cooler temperatures too and some decent fishing for the rest of the season.

Last week fishpal beats reported 63 salmon and 16 sea trout. The EA report the upstream count for September was 3,090 with more than one third of the counts recorded across the last three days of the month. The count for the year to date is 18,828.

Recent catches include Dominic Outlton who I had the pleasure of guiding and netting his first migratory fish - a 7lb sea trout at Chollerton. Fishing with James Stokoe at Lambley (and Dad presumably) Ollie Beckham at only 7 years old landed 2 salmon from Lambley 5lb and 10lb - quite a start to an early angling career!

Paul Charlton had a 6lb salmon from Warden on fly, Giles and Ben Harwood (farther and son) had 6lb sea trout and 7lb salmon from Lambley, Rory Lees had a salmon of 6lb and a 3lb sea trout on fly in big water.

Ben Thompson had a salmon on fly from the South Tyne as did Zoila Brozas who landed a 14lb fish, Sarah Iveson landed a salmon too also from the South Tyne on Red Francis fly of 8lbs, Malcolm Patterson one of 15lbs again from the South Tyne whilst Andy Blyth and Neil Lobban had fish from the main Tyne of 12lbs and Andrew Kidger landed a sea trout from Dilston.

From Glyn Hall at Haughton Castle - Well a north Tyne flood at last salmon should now get above Chollerford.

The first half of September fished relatively well at Haughton after a modest rise. Similar to many other beats things then dried up reflecting the river height. 8 salmon were caught, Mr Ball and another fish pal rod had fish of 10 lbs the rest were grilse . We also had with 8 sea trout including a brace for regular rod Oliver Backhouse. With the onset of rain over the last few days some new sea trout have put in an appearance along with some residents and Glyn Hall landed a 17 lb cock fish to end the month.

Andrew Jackson at Warden writes:, As water temperatures fell from mid September onwards fish switched on and catches at Warden Fishing improved with fish to 20lb being caught.

Successful Anglers that netted salmon on the South Tyne included Julian Brown 12lb, Dan Winstanley 16lb and Jim Hunter 13lb. While on the the North Tyne Richard Thompson landed fish of 16lb and 9lb and his son Alex on his first visit to fish the Tyne caught a first ever salmon at 10lb . The 30th saw Andy Brown net a lovely fresh grilse of just over 5lb while his friend Terry Hazeldean also caught his first ever salmon a 10lb fish followed by his first sea trout at 4.5lb. October started well as Terry caught two more sea trout but sadly lost several others as well, Jim Hunter was also back in action with a 12lb salmon in the net.

The Thavenot party excelled on the 2nd landing 7 Salmon (best 18lb) and 1 sea trout between them with every member of the group catching fish, no mean feat that! Congratulations to all who’ve caught recently lets hope that sport continues and that good conditions prevail for the rest of the season. Andrew.

Please send reports and/or photographs of fish caught to Email Us or contact me on 07751644599. -All reports are gratefully received and make this page a much better read for all.

Please remember that all fish caught and returned must be treated with the utmost care, keeping fish in the water at all times and handling them as little as possible - this is particularly important in higher water temperatures. Spring fish in particular will be in the river a very long time before spawning.

The latest guidance on Conservation Angling for Salmon on the Tyne (CAST) can be found at this page and has been adopted by many Tyne beats and syndicates.

Double handed Speycasting lessons, single handed flycasting lessons and guided fishing with an AAPGAI Master instructor can be booked at Email Us

Tight lines,
