Tresillian River – Cornwall

Beat 36: Tregeagle – Tresillian River

SW 873470 – SW 86946     600m of right hand single bank

This beat is just above the tide and has a good head of brown trout and usually a run of sea trout from late April. Try a 7-8ft 3-5wt fly rod and fish in the evening for sea trout. They can be caught on nymph by day but worm and Mepps (size 2) are often the most effective method, particularly after a summer spate (even better if coinciding with spring tides). The section above the weir and the pool below are generally the most productive. It is becoming a little more popular with fly fishers looking for browns but is generally very lightly fished. Keep it quiet but it has a very good head of brown trout; over 90 brownies were recorded in 2017 to 11” and 13 seatrout. 1”.
