Beat 23: Treburtle – River Ottery
SX 254891 – SX 239898 3200m right hand single bank
This is an extensive beat offering good brown trout and grayling water which will allow several anglers to enjoy a full day of wild fishing together and has been known as a good place to spot an otter. Please take extra care when wading as there are some deep pools. Previously it has not been easy to access the beat, however, there is now a second access point which makes it a lot easier, please see the map below.
The Ottery is a brushy stream in this location but there’s loads of good water and lots of brown trout once you get to know it. Lightly fished in 2016 but still recorded plenty of brownies and a few grayling.
Directions & Access:
From Launceston take the B3254 north. As you leave the town turn left to Langore and Egloskerry. Follow this road through Egloskerry and 1.4 miles after the national speed limit turn right to Treburtle. Follow the road down and up the other side and park by the white cottage on the right. Walk down the track and either access through corn field by the wood or the end of the track. OR; continue along the road for half a mile, park in the small pull in on the left and walk down across the field opposite. There is a second token box on the inside of the gate that provides access into this field.
