With 1000m of single right hand bank, this is a nice section of the Carey which is the upper and most popular of the two Carey beats. It comprises small riffle sections and some deep pools and runs, offering good dry fly and nymph fishing. Best fished from within the river using 7ft, 3-4wt fly rods. Catches on the Carey beats continue to steadily improve with reports of good mayfly hatches over the past few seasons.
Information & restrictions
Fly only. All trout under 7” must be returned, no more than 2 trout to be retained per day. Please return all sea trout and grayling. Sorry, no dogs.
Directions & access
From Launceston take the A388 to Holsworthy. After crossing the Tamar at Netherbridge, take the third turn on your right, signed Broadwoodwidger. Continue on this road, until you go over the old railway bridge and park on the right hand side before Boldford Bridge. Walk down the path to the right hand side of the bridge and enter the field through the gateway. The box is attached to a tree approx. 30m downstream from the gateway.
