Fishing holidays in Devon

Fishing Trips

We can’t praise enough Starcross Ferry’s fishing trips. Taking off from the nearby Dawlish pier, it offers regular trips between April and October for 1 ½ hour for mackerel fishing. It also available for private bookings! Either way, fishing trips should be arranged in advance, as they are very popular with visiting anglers from the UK and abroad.


Also very popular is Home Farm Fishery at Mamhead. Enjoy fishing holidays surrounded by various species of birds and wildlife, set in a secluded area in the heart of the beautiful Devon countryside. Here, you’ll be able to fish carp in excess of 20lb plus roach, trench and golden rudd.

River, Reservoir, Fly or Coarse Fishing

Dartmoor National Park offers river, reservoir, fly or coarse fishing, making it a great choice to visit on fishing holidays in Devon. Renowned for its sparkling clean rivers, anglers can expect to catch brown trout, sea trout and salmon. Fishing permits must be obtained from the Duchy of Cornwall (East and West Dart Rivers) or South West Lakes Trust (reservoirs and lakes).
