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-July and again in September. The waters here are usually very clear and sight fishing for trout with a dry fly is fantastic fun, after a rainfall event the turbidity will increase quick, and we advise the use of a Duo or Euronymph set up for these conditions. The 2021 season at Berrio Mill was pretty busy, with anglers visiting throughout the season and enjoying respectable brown trout on Dries and nymph set ups. Fish around the 10" were commonplace in 2021, with the occasional larger fish of 12” landed.
