Hard fighting rainbows in our fly fishing lake with occasional blues and browns.
At Hatchlands, we want our anglers, whether they be coarse or game, to enjoy consistent levels of good sport where they can pit their tackle against hard fighting fish in excellent condition.
Hatchlands is set in 16 acres of a picturesque valley with one fly lake and 2 coarse lakes fed by the River Harbourne.
To this end we maintain our waters in as natural a state as possible. This creates an environment which is rich in insect life, helping any fish stocked to quickly adapt to their new feeding grounds.
While all of our coarse fish must be returned as gently as possible, which is why we insist on unhooking mats and barbless hooks, we do not allow catch and release trout fishing.
We are also only a short distance from Totnes. (Head for Dartington, take second left at roundabout and stay on A385 until you see us on the left after the railway bridge. Our postcode is TQ10 9LN.)
Our hard fighting rainbows are stocked from Exmoor Fisheries, well known for its use of sustainable methods to produce the highest quality rainbows.
Unfortunately, due to the latest Government advice, Hatchlands Trout Farm will be closed until further notice.
‘For the next three weeks you will only be able to leave your house for one of four reasons:
- Shopping for necessities
- Once a day for exercise
- Medical need or providing care
- Travelling to or from work (if you can't work from home)’
In order to minimise risk of infection to others, we are therefore, in keeping with other South West Fisheries, closing until such time as the Fishery can be safely reopened. In the meantime, our thoughts are with our clients and their friends and families. We wish you all good health and our very best wishes for the future.
