This stunning Dartmoor water is stocked weekly with rainbow trout up to 7lb, with the occasional bigger fish. We also stock a large amount of blue trout which provide a really good fight and great variety. There is a resident head of wild brown trout up to 8lbs (all brown trout must be released if caught). Access is restricted to anglers only. Traditional Fly fishing only and ‘Catch and release’ is available (barbless hooks must be used). There are boats for hire, but booking is essential to avoid disappointment. The wheelyboat for disabled anglers should be booked 48 hours in advance. The local fishing club, Kennick Fly Fishers Association organises competitions, beginner’s days and social events based at the fishery.
