About Beat 7: Blue Fox Glade

Important notice – Due to high water temperatures (exceeding 18c) and its impact on fish welfare, we’ve made the decision to temporarily close this Beat. We’ll be assessing conditions over the coming weeks and will open this Beat when safe to do so. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this. This is a secluded stretch of about 1200m of left hand single bank with a nice mix of riffles, runs and some lovely big pools. Trout fishing with a chance of a sea trout or possibly a salmon, given good water. Usually lightly fished, possibly due to the walk to access the water, this beat remains productive to the few anglers who fish it regularly, often producing a really decent stamp of brown trout. Plenty of fish in the 10” range for those that give it a go.
