River Mole – River Taw

Beat 6: Garramarsh Farm – River Mole

SS 72544 22610 – SS 72314 22308    800m single bank

The Mole is perhaps the most productive tributary of the river Taw system. It comprises four main pools with a mix of glides and riffles offering a variety of water.  The larger pools are likely to offer the chance of a salmon or day time sea trout following a spate.  In times of lower water it should provide good brown trout fishing.
