St Leonard's is a gem when the water is right. 1 Km of RHB with Trout and grayling fishing with occasional sea trout. Trout season runs from 15 March to 30 September and Grayling 16 June to 31 October. This is a lovely small river, best fished with a short rod. If it is not too coloured, fish the faster runs where good fish lie deep and will move fast for any morsel. Consistently produces trout and grayling although is generally lightly fished. It has benefited from volunteer effort in 2018, clearing debris and habitat works.
