A Guide To Fishing In Cornwall
The county that brought you the Cornish pasty and the clotted cream tea, you may be surprised to hear, also brings you some of the finest angling in the UK.
Anglers fishing in Cornwall will be surrounded by a veritable cornucopia of superb waters it's the ideal location for an angling holiday. If your family isn't as keen as you are on roughing it in a caravan for the sake of a week's angling, why not combine sumptuous comfort with some tremendous fishing, by sampling the delightful Wainsford Riverside Cottages Estate in Liskeard, Cornwall.
Marvellously located between two game fishing rivers, you'll find Sea Run Brown trout and Salmon galore here. The gorgeous River Fowey, clear as gin and cunningly harbouring Salmon and Sea Trout, is a superb challenge for keen fly fishers. And you'll be staying a centrally heated, superbly equipped cottage set in a location officially designated as 'an area of outstanding natural beauty.
You can enjoy the angling delights of the River Fowey on a day basis, if you'd prefer, simply by visiting the Rivermead Farm Fishery in enchantingly named Twowatersfoot, Cornwall. Rivermead Farm offers exclusive access to a mile of the Fowey's north bank and, as with Wainsford, you'll have access to some excellent sea trout and salmon fishing here. Do note, however, that, for conservation purposes, all salmon must be returned between April and 16th June as should all sea trout caught during September.
There's more to fishing in Cornwall than the River Fowey, bewitchingly beautiful though it is. Cornwall, famously, has some of the most spectacularly haunting coastline in the British Isles; but it also has some of the most magnificent sea fishing too.
Why not spend a couple of hours mackerelling off the coasts of St Ives, Mevagissey or Looe? Or a whole day wreck fishing out of Padstow or Boscastle There are choices galore on the North coast of Cornwall, and some boats even supply angling equipment.
You can catch Pollack, Conger and Pouting very easily, and if you're luck is in, you may bag some cod and bass in the autumn months. Put safety first at all times: always tell someone where you're sea fishing, always check the tides and weather forecasts before setting off, never set off alone, and preferably always fish with a veteran sea angler.
As fishing in Cornwall begs to be combined with a family holiday, a stay at the superb White Acres Holiday Park near Newquay in Cornwall will be hard to beat.
