Trout and Salmon Fishing in Cornwall

Enjoy some excellent river fishing for Sea Trout, Brown Trout and Salmon on the beautiful banks of the river Lynher at Berrio Mill. This is free for holiday guests!
We have 550m of single left hand bank. Trout can be fished from 16th March to 30th September and Salmon from the 1st March to 14th October.
Large spring sea trout, spring salmon and late summer grilse. Fishing on the River Lynher Trouting is good  in May and June with peal from July. The Lynher is characterised by predominantly riffle/run sections and pocket water with occasional deep pools, however this compact section has 5 good holding pools! Fenced and cut out every winter, this beat has the possibility of producing some very good sea trout and salmon given adequate water. Fish with a shorter fly rod or worm/lure. If you only have a 9’ or 10’ fly rod, try filling a spare spool with some 10lb monofil and work a worm or two with a few split shot through the pools, runs and along the undercut banks. Locals get some brilliant results with these tactics.

Fishing is included for our holiday guests otherwise 2 tokens from Westcountry Angling Passport the excellent fishing scheme operated by the Westcountry Rivers Trust.
