Fishing on the Tyne

The Tyne River provides an excellent habitat for a wide variety of fish and is now considered to be the best river system for Salmon and Trout in England and Wales, challenging some of the more famous Scottish rivers.

The North Tyne runs from the Scottish borders and the South Tyne runs from the North Pennines, both meeting to form the River Tyne at Warden, just outside Hexham. This is known as Watersmeet. 

With springtime salmon numbers on the increase and more availability on the calendar, April and May are great months to get in some Spring fishing. Along with being more affordable, it is hugely rewarding and a stunning time of year to be down by the river. 

There are still some rods available in these early months, so head to Warden Fishing https://www.wardenfishing.co.uk/and book yourself a rod and even a meet-and-greet. Ghillies can show you the beats and explain the pools. Warden Fishing has helped several rods to catch their first salmon over the last 3 years.  

How about making a night of it and staying over at Stay on the hill. The Coach House is just under a mile from the river, while the Laverick and Bothy are around 2 miles. Please check out our availability on our booking calendar.
