The Official Web Site of the Lower Teign Fishing Association
Welcome to the Lower Teign Fishing Association
Enjoy fishing for salmon, sea trout and brown trout on the lower reaches of the River
Teign on the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park.
The Association controls a considerable amount of fishing on the River Teign, both
single and double bank, from near Dunsford on the edge of the National Park down
stream to below Teign Bridge just outside Newton Abbot, with additional fishing on
the River Bovey.
The Association provides fishing for both its members and visitors who may purchase
a day permit. The Lower Teign is primarily a salmon and sea trout fishery although
many good sized brown trout may be caught.
In 2016, the Association’s waters yielded a number of salmon, the largest estimated
at 13.6 lbs, the majority being caught after 16th June. During the same period sea
trout fishing yielded just less than 300 fish, the largest at 7.6 lbs. The largest
recorded brown trout weighed in at 2.25 lbs.
Visitors may find a wide variety of accommodation in the area whether it be hotels,
bed and breakfast, self-catering or camp sites. There are also a wealth of other
attractions and events taking place throughout the area. For further information
