Thread: River Wear 2020

    There's a pool a couple hundred yards below the weir at CLS on their club water which I reckon is the best chance of a spring salmon. Talking with an angler there a few years ago it really surprised me how early and how many spring salmon are caught there.
    Wear is a decent spring river in the lower beats. The weir at CLS holds many back as I think it is a thermal barrier in the early season then late April/May is often dry.
    Probably the next best bet will be the free stretch.

    As others have said, if more people fish the likely spots then more people will catch. As others have said, if the knowledge is lost and not passed on then it will be even harder to catch early fish.

    Sounds similar to where the first fish is caught on the coquet most years but the weir on the wear is on alot smaller scale, the fish tend to come in on the front of the tide and hold up below the dam, if you are there at the same time as the fish they dont seem to be fussy when tide fresh.

    Im not sure if many of you know about the Consultation that the EA are currently running - Extending the North East and Yorkshire Sea Trout Netting Season. It finishes Feb 21st. If you want to comment go to the EA site and search for North East and Yorkshire coastal sea trout fishery. You can also email jonathan.shelley@environment-agency.gov.uk who is leading the consultation.

    It is probably best to go to the EA site as this will be officially logged and they ask a few questions if you are an individual or representing an organisation. We need all the North East fishing Clubs to be all over this.

    Well my gear is ready for a session the morn.The river is dropping after a small lift yesterday and i think the water temps should be higher than normal for this time of year with all of this mild weather and no snow melt going in.
    Any fish that are in should be in more of a taking mood with these conditions.
