    River Wear 2020

    The migration destination was probably locked into the sea trout genetics all them years ago and as that lowland gradually became the north sea fish had to adapt migration patterns to todays ie leave the river head south to east anglia then cross to the Netherlands then up toward Denmark.

    River Wear 2020

    The tweed commission said 70 percent of the salmon caught in the north east coast net fisheries where destined for scotland, so the remainder shared out between all the other english rivers on the north coast would be a very small number for each river.
