SEA-TROUT came into the river during May, despite the lack of water. Anglers were catching fish into the darkness on small flies. I heard of several caught in the Durham area on Peter Ross and Teal, Blue and Silver. Some good brown trout were also caught on small flies. The river is desperate for a good spate. I appeal again to Wear anglers to contact me with details of their catches – especially brown trout and sea-trout – to enable me to give a more comprehensive report on how the river is fishing.
