Butterwell Farm is the premier destination in the Southwest for sea trout and salmon game fishing. Our ten-year average catch is 70 Salmon and 125 Sea Trout per season. The fishing comprises of approximately half a mile of double bank water plus half a mile of single bank water with 18 holding pools. We have a maximum of 4 rods and the river is divided into equal beats daily depending on number of rods and conditions.
THE SEA TROUT SEASON runs from 1st May until 31st August which is typically night fly-fishing only. However, during the months of May and June, if the water levels are high and other conditions permit, we can also allow daytime fly-fishing for Salmon and Sea Trout. Once the water is low and clear, and a reasonable number of sea trout have gathered in the pools, fishing reverts to night fly-fishing ONLY for sea trout. Guests booking this period should understand that conditions on the river will dictate the type of fishing permitted at short notice and at the owner’s discretion.
