A lovely section of the River Camel with 6 named, easily accessible pools providing excellent salmon and sea trout fishing. The beat also offers good dry and nymph fly fishing for brown trout. A glance over the bridge in September showed the pool stuffed with stunning fish. 2019 catch returns show us that anglers have had a great year for brownies and have observed good numbers of peal and Salmon. The morning and evening hatches at Tresarret can be incredible, presenting anglers with the opportunity for great dry fly sport.
