Weekly Fishing Radio Show

Anne with Lochy fishery manager John Veitch

This weeks salmon news for the Saturday morning radio show “Gone Fishing with Sam Harris” saw me out and about on the River Tweed at middle Pavilion.

River Tyne

Last few days the temperature of the river has risen to 40’F. Keilder has reduced the release to 15 cumuics – which has helped reduce the river levels on both the north and main tyne below Hexham. This has opened up more fishable water on the fly resulting in 3 fish this week up to 14lbs on the fly at Bywell. Successful fly gold bodied willie gunn

Beats to fish next week are Styford, Eltringham, Federation and Wylam – find fishing.

River Wear

On my daily walk along the River Wear this week – the river is looking in fine shape. 33 salmon have passed through the fish counter at Durham in January. Last years fish counter total of 22,094 salmon and sea trout is the best since 2003. River Wear is worth fishing – read more about the River Wear.

Latest catches for Scotland 

Tweed 44 salmon up to 14lbs

Fishing Middle Pavilion 27th February

Head Boatman Mick Charlton earlier this week said the forecast for fishing today were going to be good and he was not wrong. The beat is in perfect shape and both myself and Susie had a super day with a strong take from a salmon each – unfortunately the silver sailors did not stick. Sorry Mick – but we had a fab day.
