With the Summer holidays now in full flow Exe Valley Fishery is the perfect place for a family day out.

Lobbs Lake is looking great and kids under 14 years old can exclusively fish this lake. We can provide equipment if you haven’t packed your own. For the younger future angler pellets are available to buy from the cafe to feed the fish in Lobbs. Picnic benches next to Lobbs Lake now have parasols and with the Cafe close by parents can relax in the shade while the youngsters enjoy the fresh air.

Anchor Lake

Not forgetting Anchor Lake which is still open and fishing well considering the heat. Please do call Sue if you have any questions about the lake. Most anglers are opting for the early morning or late afternoon / evening fishing to try and avoid the midday heat. Dry flies or small natural patterns fished just below the surface have been having the most success with the same very slow or static retrieve as mentioned in previous reports. We are currently still offering the Catch and Release ticket along with the 5 catch and take permit options.

First time Exe Valley Fishery anglers, Jonathan & James, visited last weekend and caught this stunning Blue as well as this cracking Rainbow Trout. Both tempted in by a Daddy Longlegs.
