What will October bring?

As the Trout rods are put away the Salmon fishers will be hoping for a bumper October.

We have had another dry year on the river and it certainly needs a lift now to get things going. Every river around us seems to have had regular spates this summer but the Wear has not. Fingers crossed that the rains come in early and the fish quickly follow.

Please be sure to report your catches back to the club we really value all information about success on our waters.

A few of these from Willington would be nice for starters


Tucking away the Trout rod or Gearing Up for Grayling ?

As we enjoy the last knockings of the Trout season are you looking at cleaning your gear and putting it away for the winter or have you got Grayling on your mind?

Anglers have reported large numbers of Grayling being caught when fishing for Trout, including everything from  small fish to some above 2lb. 10 to 12 inch fish have not been uncommon.

For visitors , day tickets are available throughout the winter and for members a spot of Grayling fishing could add extra value to that membership. If you do get out there catching Grayling please be sure to let us know how well you do.

Fine Grayling
