Clatworthy is a haven for those who love to fly-fish - the trout in the reservoir are always looking up and most of the time can be found cruising just under the surface. A well presented dry fly is often enough to produce a take.
Undulating hills surround this reservoir which has a capacity of 1,180 million gallons and has depths of up to 96 feet - it means water temperatures can stay low into early summer.
One of the best ways to fish Clatworthy is from a boat; it allows you to cover the fish and explore the many bays and arms of the reservoir. Clatworthy has nine fishing boats plus a wheelchair-friendly boat for anglers with disabilities and their helpers.
The dam area is popular with boat anglers, especially in the summer as the destratification line provides plenty of oxygen in that area, the numerous bays and coves lend themselves to exploration by boat and you can get a really good drift in plenty of surface action when there’s hatch on.
