Beat 33: Berrio Mill



About Beat 33: Berrio Mill

650m of LHB, this stretch of the Lynher is characterised by riffle-run sections and pocket water with occasional deep pool. This compact but varied section of the Lynher has 5 good holding pools and offers the chance of sea trout and Salmon through the season. The brown trout fishing is prevalent throughout the year but is at its best in May and June. The waters here are usually very clear and sight fishing for trout with a dry fly is certainly possible, after a rainfall event the turbidity will rise considerably and we advise the use of a Duo or Euronymph set up for these conditions. The 2020 season here was short but very productive, a number of anglers enjoyed a day of Dry fly fishing, landing a number of trout up to 10". Euro nymph techniques landed more, and larger trout through the season with fish up to 13" landed.
