Venford Reservoir

This pretty reservoir lies on the southern edge of Dartmoor. There are picnic tables, toilets facilities, free parking, and a footpath around the water’s edge. Fishing is free for wild brown trout from the bank only. Anglers must have an Environment Agency Rod Licence (non-migratory). Permitted angling methods at this reservoir include spinning, fly or bait. ‘Catch and release’ is available (barbless hooks to be used), otherwise up to 4 fish over 7″ may be taken in a day.
