South - mid Devon Fishing

Hi everyone!

Need some help - planning to go fishing to South-Mid Devon. Is there any fishing sites where you can take the 'catch' back home or cook it on the site???

Many thanks in advance.

Sam

Try these sites:

Fishing in the South Hams -

totnesinformation.co.uk/activities/.../fishi… site:

www.townparks.net/

You can also sea fish at Brixham from the harbour wall. Sea fishing is also good(I understand) from Slapton Sands, the beach slopes quickly meaning you're into deep water very quickly.

Hope this helps.

I've already called TownParks and Jerry advised me that the fish you catch on the premises stays on the premises!

I'd really love to stay somewhere by the lake and not sea...

Thanks Wegetaboutabit.

Samirka, this site has lakes. You'd have to check about whether you could eat what you catch but some self catering should sort that out if you want to cook it immediately

You will need a permit for river or lake fishing. I have seen people fishing in the river Lyn (Lynton/Lynmouth), a beautiful spot, also the Barle and Exe.
