Beat 35: Grogarth


About Beat 35: Grogarth

A kilometer of mixed double and single bank, this lovely section of the lower Fal has some good pools and runs providing brown trout fishing with the chance of a sea trout from May. There is a good head of brown trout with fish up to 13”. The water tends to colour after a spate so best fished by day for sea trout, being particularly worth a try on a spring tide. The beat fished very consistently. Please note: electric fencing is sometimes used to control stock in adjoining fields, please take care when accessing the beat.
