River Fowey: Beat 3: Ashford Mill/Bridge/RHB: New Tenants

Please note that the 2 meadows directly above Ashford Bridge have been leased from Coodes to the occupants of Ashford Mill.

Our fishing rights and our access point upriver is unchanged but the meadows have now been cleared and planted up.

Please ensure you respect the new tenants and when you access the beat stay to the river bank at all times.

Thank you.

River Fowey/Beat 6: A38/Lewarne Plantation pull-in/parking restrictions

Due to the ongoing road works west of Trago and with 4 weeks of planned night closures through April there will be no access to the Lewarne Plantation pull-in/parking between Jacks and the Halfway House.

The club gate will remain locked until all the resurfacing/road works are completed (estimate 2nd May).

Temporary access to the RHB is only from Bodithiel Bridge where a temporary access is being created by the old gate.
Parking is now further up Bodithiel Lane under the viaduct; the lower Forestry parking area we normally use is closed off by Highways England.
Access to the LHB from both Bodithiel Lane and the Halfway House end is un-affected.
Please note that access to Bodithiel Lane is only from the A390.

We will notify you when the Lewarne gate is open.

LDAC 2015 Catch Return Summary

The season saw a very encouraging increase in the total of rod-caught salmon year-on-year, rising from 33 in 2014 to 93 in 2015, up 282%.
Sea trout increased from 253 in 2014 to 268 for the 2015 season, a rise of 6% year-on-year.

On a river-by-river basis the Fowey fared better than the Lynher with a higher number of rod-caught salmon (55 in 2015 versus 25 in 2014, up 220%) with the river producing 150 sea trout versus 140 in 2014, up 7%.
The Lynher nonetheless saw a significant rebound in salmon numbers year-on-year; rising from 7 (in 2014) to 37 (in 2015), an increase of 528%; 2015 sea trout numbers also rose, reaching 73 (versus 64 in 2014), up 14%.
Some minor rivers saw a reduction in fish caught, most notable on the Inny where only one (1) sea trout was reported. Fourteen (14) sea trout were reported from the Seaton (up from 8 in 2014, an increase of 175%); probably reflecting a heavier fishing effort last season.
