Set on one of the highest points of Dartmoor, this picturesque reservoir offers low cost traditional fly fishing for wild and stocked brown trout. 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’ option available (barbless hooks to be used), otherwise up to 4 fish over 7″ may be taken in a day.

Free car parking and toilets on site.

Season: 15 March – 12 October.

Day permits available from the self-service kiosk on site.
Season tickets available are from Summerlands Tackle. Tel: 01237 471291.
