The River Avon (Devon)

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Avon

The River Avon, also known as the River Aune, rises in the southern half of Dartmoor National Park in an area of bog to the west of Ryder's Hill. After leaving the moor it passes through South Brent and then Avonwick and Aveton Gifford to enter  the sea at Bigbury on Sea.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Avon

The little river Avon in Devon can provide excellent trout fishing and excellent Sea Trout fishing, with 290 recorded in the 2008 season. The upper section of the river is primarily brown trout water with good fishing from March but with the chance of a sea trout, or even salmon, later in the year. A few large sea trout run early in the season but it is May before there is a realistic prospect of good sea trout sport, which can be expected to improve with the lengthening days. The river is fly only until the end of the Sea Trout fishing season when spinning for salmon is permitted until the season's end in November. For sea trout at night when the river is at summer level a rod of nine feet or so, in conjunction with floating line, is adequate. The Avon Fishing Association controls large sections of the river and sells weekly tickets which can be purchased from Loddiswell post office for around £60 with a monthly permit for £95 (2012 rates).
