Overview

The fishing at Tillmouth extends for approximately 4 miles downstream from Coldstream Bridge on the English bank.  It lies in an area of  Outstanding Natural Beauty and much of it is sheltered by a series of spectacular river cliffs and wooded banks which provide a haven for wildlife. Otters, ospreys, kingfishers and peregrines are a common sight for visiting fishers.  Its seclusion offers privacy and unlike  some of the beats higher up the Tweed there is no road noise.

It has 22 named pools which hold fish from Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons.

Tillmouth enjoys prolific runs of hard fighting fresh salmon throughout the Tweed's ten-month season and its 22 main holding pools offer both good high and low water fishing. Depending upon river levels, most of the pools offer easy wading from accessible banks.  For boat fishing Tillmouth has 12 boats spread between all its main pools.

Visiting anglers with their own vehicles will find access to the pools straightfoward. Large parties of people would be advised to have at least one 4x4.

Tillmouth is a 6 rod rotating beat throughout the year. From the mid-August to mid - October the beat will be fished by the owners.  A limited rods become available during this period.

Uniquely among beats on the River Tillmouth offers the services of an individual boatman per fisher.

The principal fishing hut is situated at Long Stream, just below Coldstream Bridge.   Access is  easy for  vehicles, straight off the A69.  It is the meeting point for fishing parties and boatmen.  The hut has first class  comfortable facilities inc wifi, kitchen facilites and will cater for large parties. 

There are two other huts, on the middle and lower part of the beats. These are simpler historic fishing shiels of great character with open fires for chillier days.

The owners of Tillmouth are supporters of the Tweed Angling Code and its conservation measures and tenants are to follow these guidelines.
