Catch of the week:
Peter Pattinson and Ray Fothergill took 18 fish between them Saturday morning on the meadow fly fishing a range of flies and snakes with some quality fish to the net including several over 3lb.

Memorable Moment of the week:
Cameron Graham from Morpeth, let his young daughter Ava net one of his catch at Derwent. Luckily for him she made a great job as the ghillie, as on closer inspection in the net, the fish held one of our coveted tags scoring Cameron £200!
  • Best areas and flies: The meadow was the hot spot later in the week but the north bank and Millshields is also provided fly anglers with some great sport, especially using intermediate lines and lures such as a Dawson’s Olive or Beamish Killer.
  • Best areas and baits / lures:Large rainbows have been seen chasing the abundant stocks of fry in the margins. Spinning tactics are a sure way to attract larger fish that have evolved into feeding on these small fish. The bank from the disabled platform to the Oak Tree has provided good sport all week with lots of fish caught between 3lb and 4lb.
More tagged fish will be added this week including another 600 rainbows up to 6lb
