Beat 40: South Penquite

De Lank – Camel

Beat 40: South Penquite – De Lank

SX 114759 – SX103756    Approximately 1400m of left hand single bank.

South Penquite is returning for 2018, an old favorite and a beat that we were sorry to have to shut. The De Lank is a lushous river with a variety of sections. Tumbling moorland pocket water with glides and pools. Being blocked by a barrier just down stream for the last century, the population of trout is unique with fish up to the 2lb mark being taken in the past. The Camel emergency byelaw has imposed a later start to the season to help migratory fish, despite this having little or no bearing on the upper De Lank due to the barrier, it should bring the the opening days some more productive fishing as this beat has always taken a month to get going.

Beat Details

Directions & Access:

From Launceston take the A30 west. 3.75 miles past Jamaica Inn turn right signed St Breward. Follow the road for a further 2.1 miles (turning straight, left, right at junctions) and then turn righ signed St Breward/Camelford. After about 0.75 miles there is a gateway on your left. Proceed through and park on the hard-core area. The Fish Pass code is attached to the inner field gate post by the parking area.

Info & Restrictions:

The Emergency Byelaw that is in place for the 2018 season has imposed a series of measures to protect migratory salmonids. These measures can and should be read in detail before fishing on the Camel basin. Though bait fishing is still allowed in a restricted form on the Camel, we ask anglers to only fish flies. These flies should be on single barbless hooks with a gape not exceeding 8mm.
