Ticket required
You must hold a valid EA Rod Licence and one of the following tickets prior to fishing at River Weir - Shincliffe Hall:




If you purchased your ticket online via Castbooker, please bring your confirmation email and some form of identification with you when you fish as you may need to show them to a Bailiff (this can be printed or on your phone).

The water holds a good head of brown trout and good catches of grayling have been reported during winter months with fish over 3lbs being taken.

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.
