The Swanmeadow beat consists of a mile of single bank fishing starting at the Swanmeadow Lodge and running through 10 named pools ending at the Boundary/Church pool below St Marys Church. Put together, these are a succession of runs and glides that produce salmon in all heights of water to fly and spinner.

The trout fishing is mostly deep wading over gravel, so more of the beat becomes accessible in low water. This is good dry fly fishing water with opportunities to catch off the top throughout the season. The fish are wild, averaging over 1lb. The fishing is from the right bank which suits the right handed trout angler fishing upstream.

This beat can ONLY be booked directly through Swanmeadow Fishery and Holiday Cottages at Swan Meadow Fishery and Holiday Cottages or telephone 01873 840207 or 07866 601310.

Rules and Regulations
