About Beat 48: Colliford Lake (Day Ticket)

Day Ticket with a 4 Fish Limit at Colliford Lake. An Evening Ticket is also available on site. Colliford is the largest trout fishery in Cornwall at 900 acres and fly fishing is for stocked and wild browns. There are miles of bank to explore and the best advice is to travel light and stay mobile to find the fish which are territorial. Some fantastic fishing has been reported with very successful sessions and high numbers of fish caught. A 9lb 8oz fish was caught and released in 2018 and plenty of around the 3lb mark last year!
