There are some fantastic Chub and some good but hard to catch Barbel in this section along with other species of coarse fish

As with most stretches of the Wear, in the right conditions good returns of salmon & sea trout can be made.

The section also holds a good head of chub and dace, with the Angling Times Teams Championships and Wear Championships fixtures being won from here several times.
Above the Hall

This stretch is on the south bank up river from the hall and goes all the way up to and just past the footpath that runs up into the woods.

This stretch is magnificent for game fish, shallow, fast with deep runs and it also holds a good head of coarse fish with lots of trout.
