Description: The Carey is a productive tributary of the Tamar and this beat has produced brown trout to 1lb and grayling to around 10”. It is best suited to a shorter fly rod 7ft, 3-4 wt. The lower ham of this beat is easily accessible while the upper ham beyond the woods is a lovely wild part of the valley. Relatively lightly fished again in 2013, it still produced 20 brown trout and a number of grayling for the few anglers who tried it.
Fly fisherman are welcome to try the fly on Downacarey Lake (Token beat 41) for carp and rudd. The best time of year for this will probably be during the warmer months when these fish are willing to feed at the surface. The river is also now open for graying fishing throughout the winter where fly fishing or trotting is permitted.
Restrictions: Fly only. All trout under 7” must be returned, no more than 2 trout to be retained per day. Please return all grayling. Sorry, no dogs.
Now open for Winter Grayling Fishing - please feel free to try fly fishing or trotting to catch grayling but use barbless hooks at all times please. When fishing during the winter please take great care when wading to avoid the tail of pools where salmonids may have/ be spawning.
