Beat 36 - Tregeagle



About Beat 36 - Tregeagle

This beat, with 600m of RHB, is just above the tide and has a good head of brown trout and usually a run of sea trout from late April. Trout season runs from 1 April to 30 September. Try a 7-8ft 3-5wt fly rod and fish in the evening for sea trout. They can be caught on nymph by day but worm and Mepps (size 2) are often the most effective method, particularly after a summer spate (even better if coinciding with spring tides). The section above the weir and the pool below are generally the most productive. It is becoming a little more popular with fly fishers looking for browns but is generally very lightly fished.
