Dartmoor Sea Trout

Dartmoor Sea Trout

A reminder that our membership includes permission to fish the Dutchy water on Dartmoor. (Subject to level of membership)

This sea trout estimated at 3-3.5lbs was caught by a visiting angler staying at Two Bridges who hadn’t fished for peal for many many years.

He encountered it at the tail of Brakey Firs, first week in June. Quite fresh so must have run hard and fast on high water. Midnight. He was concerned about the disease on its snout but happy that it swam away strongly.

Some Totnes fish counter photos

These are some selected fish counter photos from May/June this year. Some of these fish are fairly large. Because these photos are from above, it is not entirely possible to distinguish between Salmon and Sea Trout but the longer ones are probably salmon. As a guide to length, the electrode strips are 45cm apart.
