The River Taw

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Taw

The River Taw has two main sources, the Taw itself which rises on Dartmoor and the Mole which rises on Exmoor. The two combine and flow 45 miles to enter the sea on the north Devon coast, sharing an estuary with the River Torridge. As a spate river the Taw responds quickly to rainfall producing rapid rises and falls in river levels.

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Taw

The Taw is a renowned sea trout river, recording a very respectable 570 fish in the 2008 season, some into double figures in weight. Throughout its length the fishing is owned by riparian owners, clubs, syndicates and hotels. Some of the fishing is made available on a season or day permit basis for local or visiting fishermen. The River Taw Fisheries Association was set up to protect and improve the river habitat and provides useful information on catches of migratory fish.
