With 1400m of LHB. The De Lank is a lushous river with a variety of sections. Tumbling moorland pocket water with glides and pools. Being blocked by a barrier just down stream for the last century, the population of trout is unique with fish up to the 2lb mark being taken in the past. The Camel emergency byelaw has imposed a later start to the season to help migratory fish, despite this having little or no bearing on the upper De Lank due to the barrier, it should bring the the opening days some more productive fishing as this beat has always taken a month to get going.
