The River Tyne runs through Hexham and is England's finest salmon river.
The River Tyne is England’s premier salmon river, with dace, roach, chubb, pike and sea trout also found in the Tyne. Brown trout are common, with some rainbow trout around too.
All fresh water fishing in England requires both a permit from the owner or manager of the water in question and an Environment Agency National Rod Licence.
