The Tees rises on the eastern slopes of Cross Fell and flows eastwards for 85 miles to reach the North Sea near Middlesborough.
The Upper reaches of the river, which fall within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, are the domain of wonderful wild brown trout.
The middle and lower reaches, whilst offering equally exceptional wild brown trout and grayling fishing, now offer the opportunity for salmon and sea trout.
