With 1100m of right hand single bank the Lerryn is a small stream with some deeper pools providing brown trout and seatrout fishing; the beat is just above the tide. The seatrout run can be good although they are difficult to tempt on this small stream where a super stealthy approach is necessary. This is a tiny little stream so short rods and light tactics are essential.
