The Tyne has enjoyed it's best ever recorded run of July fish with the EA recording 11,845 upstream counts for the month.

There are certainly plenty of fish about - lots of sea trout with some fresh grilse and Summer salmon mixed in. These are well spread on the main river and North Tyne in particular which has benefitted from some Kielder releases during the otherwise very low flows. 

Tempting them to take a fly however, has proved frustrating at times considering the number of fish about. High water temperatures have made the fish dour at times with lots of half hearted pulls and nips but some fish have been landed too.

Included in recent catches are Sarah Iveson with a 6lbs sea trout on fly around Bellingham, John Brock with a 5 lbs sea trout from the main Tyne, Dave Barratt with a grilse and sea trout on fly from Styford and Neil Lobban with a grilse from the main Tyne. Also on the main George Webster landed a nice sea trout of about 7lbs on fly.

On her fist days fishing a river Gina Zeitlin landed a 4lb sea trout on a fly and Tom Wood and Martin Badder landed a nice fly caught sea trout a piece of 5lb and 4lb. Chay Hedger landed a 10lb salmon on a single handed rod from the junction of the North and South Tynes, Julian Brown landed a 4lb seatrout on the South Tyne with the gauge reading -8 while James Stokoe landed 4 sea trout from the upper North Tyne.

While we wait for some meaningful rain fishing early and late and on the cooler days ideally during a Kielder release will give the best chance.............but the fish are there!

Conservation Angling for Salmon on the Tyne (CAST)

All fish landed should be kept in water in a net and handled as little as possible before careful release. Spring fish particularly are very precious and each one is a special catch to be well looked after. Please remember they will be in the river a very long time before spawning and deserve your respect. 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.
