The River Fowey
Sea Trout Fishing on the River Fowey
The River Fowey, Cornwall, is a spate river
giving excellent salmon and sea trout fishing. The Fowey,
running off Bodmin Moor, has four important tributaries: the
Cardinham River, the Warleggan River, the St Neots River,
the Tranent Stream.
The upper reaches of the Fowey are mainly moorland giving
way to woodland and farmland, predominantly livestock.
When the river is low and clear, night fishing for sea trout
and fine tackle for salmon by day are the best methods and
night fishing can be highly successful. In 2008, the Fowey
recorded a catch of 519 sea trout.
