The Butterwell Fishery

The Butterwell Fishery is set in a picturesque estate of 40 Acres, just downstream of Nanstallon Village and approximately 1 mile above the tidal reaches of the River Camel.

There are over 8 natural holding pools along the Butterwell stretch in addition to which we have added 12 exciting new pools over the last 30 years. These new pools have been built with large granite boulders placed across the river bed to form underwater weirs and they are now proving to be very popular holding pools for both sea trout and salmon. Butterwell is the premier fishery in the south west for sea trout and salmon.

The fishing comprises of approximately half a mile of double bank water plus half a mile of single bank water and is divided into two equal beats for two rods each, which alternate daily.

We also have a third beat (approx. ½ mile and part double bank) available for single rod booking. This beat alternates daily along with the Butterwell house beat whenever practical. Day Ticket Water.

Self catering and bed and breakfast available.

    Many years ago I stayed here for my honeymoon. It’s a delight. Caught a 5lb seatrout which at the time was a pb.

    I cannot recommend it more highly. You often come across the expression “premier fishery” and in this instance it really warrants it. You also find the expression “run by a fisherman for fisherman” and again this place is spot on.

    The work the owner has done on the river creating pools was innovative and very effective.

    Its only a small river so it will test your skills to the limit. This is one for stalking. Imagine tangling with a 20lb fresh run salmon in such tight confines in crytal clear water.
