Tight lines on the Mersey River

The Mersey is a very clear-water stream, has a long journey from the mountains to the sea, and is well served with Anglers Access information and infrastructure.

There are bright open sections and plenty of shaded areas, fast water runs and riffles, as well as extended flat pools.

On bright sunny days, late season, Mersey trout can be found sipping small mayfly from the surface.

Felt soles are ideal on the rocky river sub straight for good grip and a silent approach.
