Why fish the Tyne System?

Statistically, the Tyne gives you the best chance of landing a salmon in England and Wales. There are few better rivers for a shorter trip, especially if you live down south and travelling to Scotland seems like too far. Most years, the fish counter at Riding Mill sees over 30,000 salmon pass. This is remarkable when you consider that the River Tyne was in dire shape not so long ago during its industrial heyday. Between the South Tyne, North Tyne, and the main river, there is a massive variety of water. Each river differs hugely in character and offers something different. Because the three rivers are rarely more than half an hours drive from one another, you can fish all three over one trip with complete ease.

One advantage of fishing the Tyne system is that the North Tyne is fed from Kielder Water. Weekly releases from Kielder water keep the level topped up in the North Tyne and main river so even if there has been no rain there is always the chance of a fish.
