River Coquet

Fantastic Angling on River Coquet

Fishing On The River Coquet Northumberland

The River Coquet rises in the Cheviot Hills and flows some 40 miles east through the Northumberland countryside to enter the North Sea at Amble. The Federation controls much of the Coquet's best fishing with many fine holding pools. Federation waters include stretches of water situated high in the foot hills of the Cheviots around Linbriggs in the border lands amongst some truly spectacular scenery. The river here, deep in the Cheviot Hills, overlooked by the Shill, tumbles through steep gorges, over small waterfalls into deep dark pools. The fishing will appeal to those fishers who enjoy stalking wild fish in remote waters and are prepared to go "off piste" searching for wild Trout, Sea Trout and the occasional Salmon.
Lower down the river around Rothbury there are some fine holding pools with deep runs near Thrum Mill and Pauperhaugh. Lower still there is some fine Salmon water downstream of Felton and around Warkworth. Federation waters also include fishing on the tidal section where fresh fish just off the tide can be caught. The season runs from 1st February to 31st October with the river receiving good spring runs of Salmon and late runs of predominantly Sea Trout, which can approach 20lb in weight.
