The River Tavy

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Tavy

Rising on the heights of Dartmoor, the River Tavy, like the Walkham and Plym, is a Devon spate river renowned for its sea trout, (or peal as they are known as in the West Country), with the bonus of a worthwhile run of late summer/autumn salmon.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Tavy

The river Tavy has a good run of sea trout, with a catch of 285 recorded in 2008. The Tavy Walkham and Plym Fishing Club  manages some of the fishing on those rivers and, although some beats are reserved for members, day and weekly permits are available to visiting anglers for much of their waters. Spinning is permitted for sea trout and this can be the most productive method when the rivers are in spate but when the rivers are running low and clear, wet fly fishing in the day or even better at night can produce good bags and these are the methods preferred by locals.
