Current Prospects on the Tyne:
The excellent runs of fish continue, the record July count of 9,240 exceeded the previous high of 8,112 in 2004. The count for August up to the 11th is 3,708, with counts of 641 on the 5th and 504 on the 8th, this count is already among the higher than average counts for the whole of the month. Salmon numbers are increasing and reports from the coast suggest that many more will enter the Tyne soon. Latest catch reports confirm that more salmon are in the Main Tyne. The current Kielder release of 1.8 cumecs will run until the 15th when the flow will ramp up to 9.3 cumecs at 19.30 hours. The recent heavy showers have put a little extra water into the reservoir and the upper South Tyne. The tides are over 5.0 metres this week and these high tides encourage fish to enter the river. A lot of fish are now in the lower river
