Beat 41: Collon Barton

Lerryn – Fowey

Beat 41: Collon Barton – Lerryn

SX 142572 – SX 146582    1100m of right hand single bank.

*  The Lerryn is a small stream with some deeper pools providing brown trout and seatrout fishing; the beat is just above the tide. The seatrout run can be good although they are difficult to tempt on this small stream where a super stealthy approach is necessary. The seatrout usually come in from May with best results fishing a falling river after a spate (especially if timed with spring tides). It is most suited to worm and spinning, but a short, ligh fly rod will work. Works to improve this beat will be happening throughout the season as we get into the river to clear some debris dams. Hopefully this will not be to disruptive and ultimately improve the run of fish.
