About Beat 37: Fernworthy Reservoir

Set on one of the highest points of Dartmoor, this picturesque reservoir offers traditional fly fishing for wild and stocked brown trout. We stock fish up to 4lbs with the average size being 10-12 inches. Fishing is from the bank only. Traditional dark fly patterns (Black Gnats, Bibios, Beetles, and Hoppers) as well as sedge patterns (Invicta) work well. Fish the margins and walk the banks to cover as much water as possible. ‘Catch and release' only on this ticket. Best Flies: Black Gnat/Invicta/G & H Sedge/Dry flies July onwards.
