River Till

Fantastic Angling on River Till

Fishing On The River Till Northumberland

The river Till is a major tributary of the river Tweed, the foremost Salmon river in Scotland, if not the UK. The Till rises in the Cheviot Hills and although it’s course is wholly in England, it comes under the jurisdiction of the River Tweed Commissioners. For this reason, rules and regulations regarding such things as closed season, methods of angling and catch and release are set by the Tweed Commission and Scottish Law. Anglers, before they fish, must be aware of the Tweed Commission regulations for Sea Trout and Salmon.

The Till is one of the best Sea Trout fisheries in the UK and it is known for runs of large fish in the early season - April and May being the best months. Smaller fish are found in July and August with Grilse and Salmon running the river in summer months right through to the “back end” in October and November. Also the river Till has a good head of Grayling which can be fished for all the year round but please read the Tweed Commission code for Grayling.

The Federation has access to over two miles of excellent water on the main river near Wooler. Season permit holders and visitors can book fishing by direct contact with the Head Bailiff.
