Fishing

We have a private one mile stretch of the River Coquet available to guests keen to test their angling skills on one of England's most renowned game fishing rivers.

The river boasts a resident population of native Brown Trout with the best fish to date coming to the bank after an epic struggle at a whopping 6lb.

We also have seasonal runs of Salmon & Sea Trout with top weights of 22lb and 14lb respectively.

We try and keep the fishing as relaxed as possible, but inevitably, there are a few rules which we need to make anglers aware of :

  • A valid fishing licence is required by all anglers.
  • Brown Trout - Strictly fly only.
  • Brown Trout bag limit - 3 fish per angler with a 9 inch minimum take size.
  • Salmon & Sea Trout - Fly, spinning, shrimp & prawn (February to October). Worm allowed 1st June onwards. No maggots or live bait at any time.
  • Rod maximum size - 12 foot 6 inches
  • Lead core lines are not permitted
  • Fishing not permitted from 12 midnight until one hour before sunrise during June, July & August. All other months ? Fishing is not permitted from one hour after sunset until one hour before sunrise.
  • A catch and release policy is in place for all salmon caught before the 16th of June to help with conservation of stocks.

Salmon - 1st February to 31st October
