Trout Fishing at Burrator


Burrator Reservoir, Yelverton, Devon PL20 6PE

This attractive Dartmoor trout fishery is one of the most tranquil and picturesque natural angling venues in the South West. Fly fishing from the bank is for stocked rainbow and blue trout up to 5lbs. Fantastic news for anglers in 2019 as we are stocking a lot of fish at 3.8lbs plus. There is a good head of natural brown trout which are catch and release only. There are two fishing boats which are managed by the Burrator Fly Fishers and can only be used by club members. To join the club or for more information please email treasurer.bffa@gmail.com, visit the website, or follow the club on Facebook.

At this time toilets are closed at this fishery and we will reopen them as soon as we can in line with government advice.
