Guided Salmon & Sea Trout Fishing

Fishing with Paul Bullimore

The Lower Frome has a well known track record of producing big fish, not only the huge Grayling the river is now famous for but also huge Sea Trout and Salmon. Historically the river had a massive average size of Salmon with 30lb fish being common and several 40lb fish being caught each season. Although these huge multi sea winter fish have all but vanished there are still big fish in the upper 20’s being landed and lost each year. The majority of the fish caught in recent times are 2sw fish of between 10 and 16lb with a fair numbers of bigger fish and a few grilse as well.

Guided fishing for Salmon is offered on two lovely private beats on the lower river. Fishing on these lower beats is normally by fly or spinner although some rods also fish the prawn. There are numerous deep pools and shallower runs giving a wide variety of water to fish.

If you catch the river right you may be lucky enough to encounter a large multi sea winter salmon or even a double figure sea trout, if you are vey luck you may even land one!

All of the salmon fishing on the Frome is syndicated although limited day tickets are available in order to give people a taste of what this beautiful river offers.
