    We need more rain but at least it lifted upwards today Could do with a good flush out.
    Never seen it so low, in over 40yrs of fishing the river.

    Not seen anyone post on here for a while, so I thought I'd try and revive what used to be a popular and useful thread.

    I managed to get out today for 3 hours. The spot I wanted to fish had a car in the lay-by (I should get up earlier) so I went further upstream. The water was low and clear and we had a cold downstream wind that made accurate casting difficult. I started with a couple of nymphs and fished the head of a long pool. I picked up a couple of fish and then moved on to fish some pocket water where I picked up another couple of small fish. We had a couple of showers and after each, the river came alive and I managed some good sport on dries, albeit the wind made casting difficult. I rose a lot of grayling and missed most. Ended the day with 10 fish, best about 1 1/4lb grayling.

    The trout season is now over for another year. I've had some excellent trout from the river this year, especially early season. The hot, dry summer made June, July and August difficult and I ended up leaving the river alone for many weeks. Hopefully, we'll get a good autumn and can target the grayling.

    There is a few grayling starting to show now the temperature is dropping it would be a good time to get out on the river. Leaves are dropping and fish are rising.

    I had three hours today on the middle Tees. The wind was blustery and the river low for the time of year. I fished a "New Zealand" style indicator and a nymph. Caught fish steadily, after a slow start, and had 8 grayling and four OOS trout. Some nice grayling to be had. There was a few fish rising, but due to the wind I stuck to the nymph. I left the river just after lunch when the wind really got up and made casting upstream very difficult.

    We had the Grayling Society Symposium & fishing day in our neck of the woods this year, it was a great weekend & from the guys who I've heard back from everyone had fish from the Tees, Swale & Wear.

    Fished the middle reaches on Saturday, had about a dozen to small dries, though the majority were fingerlings. There seems to be loads of them about as if its been a good spawning season which is good for the future I suppose so long as the otters, goosanders and cormorants leave them alone!!!!

    Any DBT members on here ? (George ?)

    does anyone know the official boundaries of the tees between Middleton in teesdale and burn foot farm - I was chased off this section a few weeks ago just between the lune mouth and the green foot bridge at Toby hill cottages by a rather unpleasant landowner who said the (south bank??) mickleton side of the river was his.

    Graeme unfortunately he was within his rights to chase you off as that is not DBTA water. That does belong to him & is being leased to a syndicate.
    We have the south bank from Middleton road bridge until the first river bed of the lune mouth, don't confuse this with the one that is still flowing water it is about 50m upstream of this and is totally dried up. We have the north bank from the bottom of the caravan park down to the stream at burnfoot farm. Hope this helps you, drop me a pm if I can help further.
