Tamar Beat – Reserved Water

The Tamar Beat is only available to Full Members, it is Reserved Water. Full Members may fish in rotation according to the colour of their ticket and the club calendar entry relating to the Top Beat on the River Tavy. Fishing is with fly or artificial lure. Fishing from any of the bridges is prohibited.

The River Tamar beat may be fished on the day the member is allocated the Top beat on the River Tavy. A member may invite another member with a different colour card to fish with them, using two rods. A member may invite an Associate or guest to fish with them, sharing one rod.

The beat is approximately 1 kilometer long and the fishing is on the right bank in the two fields shown on the map.

Please park in the cattle handling pen and ensure that the track and gate into the field are kept clear at all times. Should the farmer want to use the handling pen he will find the fishermen on the bank and request that they move their vehicles. We have been advised this will only be a few times during the season. No dogs or cars are permitted in the fields, please close all gates.

Please follow the River Tamar and Tributaries Fishing Association Code.

All salmon caught before 16 June and after 31 August must be returned.

Fishermen should release the first two salmon caught and then may keep the third to ensure a minimum 70% return.

Up to one fish per day may be kept between 16 June and 31 August provided it is under 10lbs (30 inches) and not coloured.

Two sea trout per day may be kept providing they are under 3lbs.

From 15 October, when the game fishing on the Tamar finishes, to March 14 members may fish for Grayling on the Tamar with a fly only. No grayling fishing is permitted on the club’s other waters.
