The Arundell Arms Hotel in Lifton has some twenty miles of fishing rights on creeks and small rivers like the Wolf, Thrushel and Lyd, plus on larger rivers like the Tamar and the lower part of the Lyd, where salmon and seatrout are the main quarry. Tinhay Lake is a ginclear, deep lake the shores of which are used for fly-casting tuition, but is a nice extra when the rivers are high and dirty after heavy rain fall.

Arundell Arms rivers - We fished the Beat 6a today, which consists of the last part of the River Wolf, down to where it runs into the River Thrushel, plus the first few hundred meters below that junction pool.

The rivers must have had a heavy beating from last and this years extreme temperatures and drought. The brown trout and grayling we did catch looked like they were wild fish at least.
