Lower reaches of the Taw also contain trout. Trout fishing on lower beats is better when water levels are not high.

For trout fishing, Westcountry Rivers Trust runs the Angling Passport Scheme by which one can fish in exchange for purchased tokens. For information on the scheme contact Westcountry Rivers Trust www.wrt.org.uk

Season Rods:

In addition some day tickets may also be available where fishing is usually let on a season basis.
