Tyne Update January 29th

 

The new Salmon season on the Tyne opens on Thursday 1st February. Anglers will be out on the river banks having a cast and coming together to catch up and look forward to the season ahead. The lower river is the usual target for the first fish with beats below Riding Mill fish pass usually producing the early fish, particularly when flows are high and the water cold. Most anglers searching for the first salmon of the season will therefore be fishing the river from Wylam up to the well known Spring beats of Bywell and Styford and the pools directly below the pass itself. 

 

Once levels drop and things warm up a bit, fish will ascend the pass and bring the rest of the main river and lower South and North Tynes into play too. Indeed May fish have been caught in recent years as far up as Bellingham/Riverdale on the North Tyne.

Successful early Spring tactics include getting the fly/lure down a bit and most importantly slowing it down as it swings through the lies as compared to Summer fishing but Spring fish, although fewer in number, do tend to take well and are certainly a very memorable prize for those lucky enough to be rewarded for their efforts.

Please do remember that these fish are extremely precious and look after them properly - see CAST below.

 

 

Tight lines to all Tyne anglers for 2024!

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)  has been adopted by many Tyne beats and syndicates and can be found at Conservation Angling for Salmon on the Tyne (CAST) | Tyne Rivers Trust
