Three and a half miles of superb brown trout, sea trout and salmon fishing. The fishery is mostly double bank, with two rods only allowed per beat. Three fishing huts. Includes famous pools such as Alder, Chenson Bridge, Nursery, Big Moor, Rook’s and Junction. The river has some very easy access points both for day and night fishing. There can be a prolific mayfly hatch. Double figure sea trout catches are notable but not uncommon. Largest sea trout 17 1/2lb and largest salmon 28 1/2lbs although in last 15 years largest sea trout was 10 1/2lb and largest salmon 18lbs. Over two hundred brown trout above 1′ are also caught each year. Trouting is catch and release, and although this is also encouraged for salmon and sea trout, after June 30th it is permitted to retain sea trout and salmon.
These beats have been totally private since 2003, with the exception of one beat, which was occasionally let out to a local hotel.
