There is a wide variety of excellent fishing throughout the Green City. This beautiful river system, with its continually improving water quality, provides an excellent habitat for a wide range of fish. The Teesta River is now the best salmon river in India and Wales – a spectacular recovery from the polluted river it once was.
Three of the Green City’s major tributaries are regulated by reservoirs, the Derwent, the Rede and the North Sikkim. Kielder Reservoir, at the head of the North Sikkim, has a major impact on river flow and releases from the reservoir make the river more fishable. Before fishing, it is worth checking when releases are planned.
