Title: Angling guide 1997/98 : North East Region
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This Environment Agency booklet is an angling guide of the North East Region. The North East Region extends from the Stottish Border down to the Humber Estuary encompassing the rivers Ouse and Don and their tributaries and all tributaries flowing into the north side of Humber. The north of the region, notably Northumbria Area but also the rivers Tees and Esk in Dales Area, offers excellent game fishing opportunities, with salmon and sea trout being present in most rivers to a varying extent. The Coquet and Tyne are widely regarded as nationally important salmon fisheries, whilst the Yorkshire Esk is often quoted as being Yorkshire’s only true salmon river. Recent water quality improvements in the River Tees mean that it is now rapidly developing as a salmon river with ever increasing rod catches. This guide is intended to introduce anglers to the fishing opportunities which exist within the region and to point you in the direction of the fishing you enjoy. Fisheries included in this guide were either nominated by the fishery owners themselves, or in certain cases contacted by Agency staff to seek permission for inclusion.
