Catch of the week:
Ray Whaley took another impressive catch midweek with eight fish netted in the first 90 minutes, he then returned for a second permit and left mid afternoon with 16 fish, all caught on Powerbait.

Memorable Moment of the week:
Saturday morning was very busy for John Carr from Chester le Street who netted eight fish in a couple of hours from the north bank next to the Tower on Powerbait with the best one 3lb
  • Best areas and flies: Some excellent sport is currently on offer with intermediate lines and lures such as a Cat’s Whisker, Dawson’s Olive or Black Fritz. The north side such as Cronkley and Millshields have seen great returns and lots of fish netted around the 2lb mark
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Anglers using spinners and bait have recorded excellent returns. Areas near the Dam and Hunter House have performed best with Powerbait eggs the best bait when combined with Magic Dust in a feeder. Spinners such as Toby and Mepps are also working well with the continued mild weather.
  • Special message for the new week: Day permit price has been reduced to £19 (9am-4pm) to reflect the shorter days for the winter months. Stocking will continue throughout the winter.
