Fishing

Pack up your rod and bait and visit Northumberland's streams, rivers and coasts where you will find a wealth of fishing opportunities.

Our county overflows with sparkling freshwater lakes and scenic valley streams and rivers where salmon and sea trout return every year to spawn.

Starting in the North you have the river Tweed and Till which teem with salmon and sea trout.

There's great fishing on the banks of The Tyne - which is widely considered to be England's finest salmon river - or the Coquet and Wansbeck.  The Tyne Angling Passport is a not-for-profit scheme designed to open up new or currently inaccessible areas of river for day-ticket fishing.

You can also fly fish for trout in the magnificent man-made surroundings of Kielder Water & Forest Park and there is also first-class still water fishing at Derwent Water.

Coarse fishing enthusiasts appreciate the relaxed atmosphere of the Tyne and the lower reaches of most of our rivers while casting for grayling, perch, roach, dace, gudgeon, pike and eel.

And we're a coastal county, so don't forget that you can head out to sea by boat and enjoy a sea fishing charter trip from friendly traditional fishing villages like Seahouses and Amble.
