Fishing Breaks in Cornwall

Lostwithiel Golf Hotel & Country Club



A large lake in attractive surroundings, set in the middle of the golf course, well stocked with Common, Mirror, and Crucian Carp; Tench, Roach small to large, and good sized eels. Most fish will be 2 to 3 lbs, but there is at least one unidentified large fish, estimated over 18lbs, been there for years, but never caught. Yet! There are around 12 fishing points, safely away from golfers.


Much smaller, and not so well stocked, but a good change for regular fishermen.

Occasional intruders arrive from the Fowey River via a connecting leat, and become marooned! Both trout and salmon have been caught here! However the Environment Agency would like to see any such fish returned to the river if practical. And we do sometimes have nesting swans, and may have to limit fishing!


Although we enjoy a long stretch of river bank, it is not very good or suitable for fishing. The river is tidal up to about our 12th green. However, you can fish from the town’s park where it is tidal, or at Lanhydrock which offers about a mile of free fishing south from Respryn Bridge. The river offers trout, sea trout, and salmon; also bass and flat fish in the tidal part.


From November to March, we will offer hotel guests booked for dinner bed and breakfast, FREE FISHING. Also during April and October for guests staying only between Sunday and Thursday nights inclusive.At other times, a day ticket must be purchased subject to availability, or in advance.
