Salmon and Sea Trout Fishing

The limited availability of some Salmon and Sea Trout fishing on a day ticket has come up through Paul Bullimore, who some of you will remember did a superb presentation at the last Chalk Stream Club meeting.

This opportunity to fish the lower Frome and learn about the art of Salmon fishing is a must, it is good news for people staying with us here in Dorset to have the full package of what this truly great Chalk Stream has to offer.

Guided Salmon Fishing

The 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.
