Fishing in Cornwall

Base yourself at Crylla Valley Cottages for a versatile fishing holiday in Cornwall. Running alongside the River Lynher, we have two access points into fishing pools, boasting Salmon, Sea Trout and Brown Trout. Elders love to while away the afternoons teaching the younger generation the finer art & patience of fishing. *

For the slightly more dedicated among you, besides Crylla there are many alternative-fishing options in our surrounding area. We have compiled a detailed list of local fishing hot spots, lakes, beaches, rocks and rivers (including level access points), for you to discover and enjoy.
