Go Wild Beat No9 River Irthing
One kilometre of left bank fishing
The River Irthing drains the area around Spadeadam, in the Northumberland National Park. It flows south west to confluence with the Eden near Warwick Bridge.
The Irthing forms the border between Cumbria and Northumberland, and the Roman border of Hadrian’s Wall runs along much of the river’s length. From the late 13th century, this area was a battlefield, with raiding, arson, kidnapping, murder and extortion being common. Family feuds and violence were a way of life. Hopefully your fishing will be much less eventful.
A very peaty water, the Irthing runs the colour of black coffee, or Theakstons Old Peculier, (depending on your preference) throughout the year.
Go Wild is our innovative roving voucher angling scheme. We have 28 challenging fishing beats spread throughout Cumbria’s beautiful Eden valley. The beats are all on private land, accessible only via the Go Wild scheme and are all real hidden gems.
Go Wild has been designed to provide a sustainable income for farmers and landowners, focusing particularly on stretches of river where habitat improvement work has been carried out.
