Salmon Fishing in Northumberland | River Tyne Salmon Fishing

Riverdale Hall Hotel overlooks the river Tyne, considered to be England’s premier salmon river. This, and superb trout fishing on the Tyne, Kielder Water and local lochs, such as Sweethope, make the Riverdale Hall Hotel a perfect location for fisherman, whatever their standard or experience.

North Tyne Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing

The fish hatchery on the North Tyne, just up the river at Kielder, is putting up to 700,000 young salmon into the North Tyne River each year. Fishermen have enjoyed several magical seasons and the situation is improving annually.

There are now more salmon caught in the Tyne than any other three rivers in England and Wales, and the Trout and Salmon magazine stated in 2003 that it is now Britain’s best salmon fishing river. Yet a days fishing, even at prime times, costs a fraction of what is paid just over the border. A days fishing costs on average £45.00, and the average weight recorded for caught fish is 14lb, with 30lb fish caught regularly. The added bonus of dam releases from Kielder Water gives the North Tyne fishing when nearby rivers are too low.

Book your stay at the Riverdale Hall Hotel and enjoy fishing our beats. You can have a day’s fishing from £35.00 per rod per day.
