Robson Green opens Hexham Fish Pass

Robson Green has officially opened Hexham Fish Pass.

The Fish Pass is designed to make it easier for salmon and sea trout to migrate upstream to breed.

Tyne Rivers Trust is the driving force behind the project, which has been more than twenty years in the planning.

It was completed last year but officially opened today (22nd March) to coincide with the opening of the brown trout fishing season on the river Tyne.
