Title: River Looe : catchment action plan
Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The West and East Looe rivers share a joint estuary at Looe. The East Looe runs due south through Liskeard and the smaller West Looe through a wooded valley and He rods ford into Looe Bay. The catchment supports a developing rod salmon, sea trout and brown trout fishery and has suffered from the effects of sewage and industrial discharges which have been exacerbated by the recent low flows during drought conditions. The aims of the plan are to achieve water quality objectives and enforce pollution control, fisheries and water resources legislation.
