Fishing on the Tyne

The Tyne is rightly regarded as the best Salmon River in England and Wales. Environment Agency catch returns and fish counts from the station at Riding Mill endorse this, with fish entering the river system every month of the year.

Here are some highlights from the Tyne:

  • Legendary Tyne salmon weighing up to 35lbs
  • Sea trout runs are excellent with good weights
  • Brown trout fishing for wild and stocked fish
  • Grayling fishing in many areas
  • Coarse fishing with dace, roach and chub

    The North Tyne and the South Tyne meet to form the River Tyne. All three strands of the Tyne river are splendid for game fishing and the North Tyne and River Tyne provide good coarse fishing. The whole Tyne system combines to give excellent fishing all year round.

    The Tyne is a massively improved river with good visitor access along its length. There is no better way to experience the renowned Northumbrian hospitality than to visit its wealth of attractions for anglers and non anglers alike.
