With 12km of mixed double and single bank this is an extensive fishery comprising a fantastic and very long stretch of brown trout water located in the Dartmoor National Park. Due to the depth of the valley and its upland aspect it can take a while to get going in spring. It comprises a good mix of pools, glides and riffles and, although good nymph water, the dry fly is king once things get going. The 2019 season had hugely productive days, some anglers catching 60 fish in just a few hours! it’s not like they lack in size either, with fish up to the 15” mark landed.
Please record trout of 17cm and above only on the catch returns.
The area around Fingle Inn and other access areas can get very busy with walkers and their
dogs. As such it is often necessary to walk to locations away from the main tourist activity.
