Experience great walks, wildlife and fishing in west Somerset
Situated on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Clatworthy Reservoir lies in the Brendon Hills, west Somerset and offers some of the best fly fishing in the West Country.
You can also walk the Clatworthy Round which is a five-mile-long route that goes around the entire reservoir.
Clatworthy Reservoir is a haven for those who love to fly fish. The trout in the reservoir can often be found cruising just under the surface – a well-presented dry fly is often enough to produce a take.
One of the best ways to fish at Clatworthy is from a boat, as it allows anglers to explore the reservoir’s many bays, coves and arms. With nine fishing boats and a wheelchair-accessible boat for anglers with disabilities, anyone can take to the water at Clatworthy.
The dam area is popular with boat anglers, especially during summer when lots of fish gather in this area. The reservoir, which has a capacity of 1,180 million gallons and reaches depths of up to 96 feet, is surrounded by impressive hills that make for a great view while fishing.
