The Fal rises near Roche to the north-west of St. Austell and, after flowing west a short distance, swings south to enter its estuary and Carrick Roads. At its western mouth lies Falmouth, the town which took its name from the river. The river is best known for moderate trout fishing. It also attracts a run of sea trout. This usually begins in early May with smaller fish following from June onwards. There is some chance for the visitor.
