Beat 34: Tresarrett



About Beat 34: Tresarrett

A stunning section of the River Camel with 6 named, accessible pools providing excellent salmon and sea trout fishing. The beat also offers spectacular dry and nymph fly fishing for wild brown trout with plenty of varied waters to be explored. The 2021 Sea trout and Salmon runs have been plentiful and these migratory fish can now be found in each of the six main pools, and in the series of smaller pools too. Sea trout can be caught during the daytime on lighter trout tackle and respond well to Caddis pupa, emergers and dries. Larger Sea trout are much easier to catch during the night and will take an assortment of classic and modern sea trout flies. The best Salmon fishing can be found during and after a rain spell, when the river is running fast and slightly coloured. New to 2021, 0.3km of LHB covering fishing from Ham Pool downstream to Bridge Pool is now available to fish.
