cracking fish Chris as I said elsewhere, (y) I've personally seen some clonking big browns come off the tees in the last few years, but like everything nowadays most of the guys I know tend to keep them off the forums & social media, due to the same bombardment of questions everyone who does post fish get...where, when & how! :rolleyes::rolleyes: these guys have put many hours on the river & the last thing they want is being pestered by guys looking for that class of fish, its all down to leg work & time on the bank..thats what pays dividends, not what club your in or which stretch it came from. Once again Chris well in mate(y)

The only reason I asked is because I have only fished the free stretch and I looking to spread my wings further and challenge my self.

Anyone fished cow green lately? I usually go every year but didn't make it last year & really fancy a session. There has got to be some big fish in there 🙂

You have caught already caught THE big fish this year

Hahahaha cow green has always intrigued me though. Beautiful place (when the weathers good lol!) & has some stunning trout in there. Something just tells me there’s got to be a few big trout roaming around in there!

I usually go about this time of year, but I value the peace and serenity of the environment. I have been there on a misty, sea-fret sort of day when the only sounds are sheep and the call of curlews, which is a lovely experience. This year, with so many people being off work and children off school - and seeing the mayhem with visitors around Bowlees - I have avoided the place.

The Darlington Brown Trout Angling club are still taking new members and wavering the joining fee for new members until the end of the year. So that's a saving of £20 for senior members.

It looks like good water, although the maps could do with bringing into the 21st century 😅
I'm thinking of joining for next season (y)

You can use the local Ordnance Survey maps.
Just tell them it is for a club, probably with your limits/beats marked on, and you will say copyright with kind permission of OS and they will say OK.

Couldn't agree with you more, I joined last year, two of the "maps" were almost blank sheets of paper but the water is well worth the joining fee.

The DBT maps are something I have on my rota. I agree they are not great and are seriously in need of some attention.
Anyone in need of assistance don't hesitate to use the DBT Facebook page. We are currently taking new members.

BTW - I fished the DBT water up around Middleton on Wed, the water was still a bit high and I didnt see a single fish move nor get a pull, I dropped onto the SAA water further downstream and it was pretty much the same story but I did manage a trout of about a pound in good fettle for the time of year on a mini streamer - last resort, I confirmed to my self that I get zero enjoyment from chucking lures!

Nice to see reports from the Tees again. I was out on Good Friday, middle Tees. Struggled early on with just a couple of small trout but after lunch there was a hatch of LDO/March Browns (I struggle to tell difference) and I caught on the dry to rising fish. Some good trout to over a pound and a lovely oos grayling meant I ended day on 8.

Yesterday I fished a little further upstream. Similar story, had a single trout on a nymph on a duo rig. The dry got attacked by a huge trout but didn’t stick and then nothing until the afternoon when a really tremendous hatch got the fish taking off the surface. Ended with 8 again and a couple of long-distance releases. All the trout seemed in really good fettle, most around a pound with biggest about 1 1/2 lb. The wind was a nightmare and made presentation difficult.

I moved about a quarter of a mile upstream to a run I usually catch in but saw not a fish move. Quite amazing how localised the hatch was yesterday. In one run it looked like fly and rising fish everywhere and close by the river looked empty of any life. Nice to be out and when the wind drops we should see the best of the Tees trout season.

Hi Daran

nice to hear of hatches, When I was out there was not a fly to be seen!

Don’t suppose anyone has found a tip section from a fly rod at Holme Farm on the ATDAC water or Gainford on the Stockton water?
