    plenty ov sea trout and occasional salmon in the pool what used to be behind the cross keys pub sadly now converted into luxury accomodation,had many a gd pint in there whilst bagging up on winter roach and dace.getting back to the leven and its trout yes loads in there,had em as far up as hutton rudby on the skutterskelf water splash section,some crackin rainbows and brownies to be had aswell,but most fly sindicate up that way and if garbutt johnson is still the bailiff up there beware,he got me many moons ago lol(matured these days).also i gd stretch if u willing to put the hours in is wilton anging club water,it runs from the A19 road bridge were it crosses the leven up as far as kirklevington roughly around mile and a half of fast water with some crackin holding pools,membership is only a tenner aswell cant complain at that,details r on the nett under wilton angling club,,,,tight lines

    As far as i'm aware Sparky, Thornaby and yarm A.C have the rights to fish The Leven below the viaduct, and its a bit more than a tenner i'm afraid. I've fished it for a few years now, and its a cracking place to fish. Total solitude. (Once you are away from the viaduct that is).

    Middlesbrough still have the bit above the weir Sparky, but its only a few hundred yards. I dont think anyone fishes it to be honest, especially as the Tees is next door. I've had some cracking Chub out of there, just above Boro's stretch, whilst fishing for Brownies with the worm.
