Kielder Burn


Kielder Burn
6 miles, both banks for brown trout. Fly and worm and then fly only August and September.

Categories: ,


This is the major tributary of the infant Tyne, flowing through scenic uplands before slowing to gentle meanders as it flows down to the North Tyne confluence. Fantastic wild trout fishing with a great variety of fly life, including a mayfly hatch. In summer, wellingtons will suffice with plenty of fordable shallows between deeper pools. A good trout will be 12ozs with some to a pound. Be aware these really are wild trout. Please avoid the river for 50 metres above and below the weir.
