Catch of the week:

Heaviest catch was from the bank close to the Mounces Burn at Kielder Waterside with eight rainbows for a total of 19lb 2oz by Richard Gough, spinning with a Black and Red Mepps lure. Heaviest fish of the week was landed at the South Abutment, also from the bank and weighing in at 4lb 7oz caught using worm and sweet corn. Water levels have dropped over the course of the week anglers have been recording numerous limit catches helped by lower temperatures than average for mid July. Mark Edgar had a great day catching 11 fish with many more dropped off whilst fishing around the Mathew’s Linn. Mark used a Cut Throat Cat’s Whisker to take the majority of the fish which were all in great condition.

Memorable moment of the week:

Twelve year old Connor Henderson landed a rainbow of 2lb 3oz fishing ledgered worm from the bank at Tower Knowe Visitor. He and Dad Ian had a total catch weight of 17lb for eight fish.

Gordon’s Walls, Whickhope Inlet, Needs Hill and Lewis Burn using intermediate lines with Orange Fritz, black snakes, Cat’s Whisker and traditional wet fly patterns.

Best areas & baits / lures

Stockie Bay, Tower Knowe, Whickhope Inlet and Lewis Burn with ledgered Powerbait in various colours or ledgered worm.
