Little Dart – River Taw

Beat 7: Blue Fox Glade – Little Dart

SS 699136 – SS 708136     1200m left hand single bank

This is a secluded stretch of river 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. 2017 catch returns have had trout to 10” with light amount of fishing presure.
