Launch A Kayak At Truro

Launch A Kayak At Truro

Loe Beach, Feock, nr Truro

Loe Beach, Feock, nr Truro (not to be confused with Loe Bar – NOT SUITABLE). Costs about £2 to park and another £1 to launch, but right out into Carrick Roads with a 20 m carry. Gets very busy in summer, but a great option for evening fishing (and normally free at this time).

A grate place to launch from, carpark just next to the beach. It is a rocky forshore but an easy portage from car to waters edge.

very busy with locals with lots of sailing boats and small motor cruisers. Beyond the mooring there is plenty of open water to go at, too the right of loe beach is a bass nursery, so no fishing, but plenty of other places to fish.

To the left you have the river fall with deep water moorings for large cargo vessels that are in storage, just past the king harry ferry. On down to smugglers cottage with more deep water moorings, and the smugglers cottage which is a cafe with free mooring if you buy a cupper and a scone.

Beyond down to malpas. but water is a bit shalow at low water that far up the river. The fishing is quite good with large gilt head bream, bass, and mullet, plenty of mackerel in the fal bay usually in the summer months.

I covered over 10 miles the day I was there but nothing to show except for a few macks and a small bass. Just a good days paddleing and a plesure to be out.

Peeler crab is the bait of choice for the gilts, as the river is stuffed full of crab , so expect to have your hooks stript. Early morning is very good for the bass on a floodding tide with poppers, and the fly I am told.

Accsess to loe beach is from feock on some very norrow roads . It is about £2 to park for the day and £1.50 to lawnch your yack. there is a small cafe at loe beach. and and exelent place for the hole family.
