4 x Spring fish caught so far on the Coquet, 3 on the tidal and 1 above the dam. All fish in the 10-16lb range taken on fly and spinner.
 
The parking at Coquet Lodge is about to change due to construction work by Northumbrian Water. Parking will still be available adjacent to the large machinery shed where a new hardstanding will be installed. This will be from the beginning of April, no parking will be allowed beyond this point for safety reasons. Updates will follow as required.
 
12th Mar. It is announced that first fish of the 2019 season has been caught.
 
8th Mar. After recent rains the river levels on the Coquet are good but the colour is very poor. Hopefully, over the weekend, the river should fish well. We remind you we are still looking for our first spring fish.
 
28th Feb. River Coquet running at summer levels, no spring fish caught. Kelts have been seen and caught above the tidal.
 
7th Feb. Weather and water conditions improving, it is hoped that the first fish will be caught in the next few days as the river levels become better.
 
Any anglers fishing the River Till this season have to be aware of revised angling codes and practices as issued by the River Tweed Commission. Links to the RTC revisions have been made available above.
 
31st Jan. We wish all members Good Luck for the start of the 2019 season. Please note the information about the parking at Coquet Lodge as above.
 
Sadly, it is our duty to inform members of the loss of a long standing Coquet angler,
 
Mr Paul Nelson from Amble.
 
May we send our condolences to the friends and family. RIP Paul.
 
 
Following the recent AGM, a number of price rises are to be incorporated. Due to the rising fishing rents, the permit price increases can be found on the Price page.
 
DO NOT APPLY FOR PERMITS UNTIL 24TH JAN 2019
 
Rule changes are currently under discussion and are not fully finalised. However, one rule, which is being imposed by the Environmental Agency is as follows in relation to: Angling Rules, Section 7. General. Para (b).  and will now read "Any coarse fish caught on the River Coquet and tributaries must be returned unharmed to the river and not killed" as previously stated.
