Fishing Breaks

 If you’re hooked on fishing and looking for somewhere in the UK to indulge your passion, South Devon may prove to be just the kind of destination you’re angling for.

The English Riviera has a long history as a Devon seaside resort, and is as popular with those looking for fishing breaks as it is with beach lovers. The area around Torquay, Paignton and Brixham has over 22 miles of coastline, and many of its beaches and headlands offer unrestricted sea fishing.

Fishing Holidays in Devon

One of the most popular spots for locals and those on fishing breaks is Brixham Breakwater, close to the area’s only remaining active fishing harbour. Float fishing and bottom fishing are common here, and species that are often caught include mackerel, dogfish, conger eels and pollock.

As well as the many popular fishing locations dotted around South Devon, there are also numerous spots that are quieter and off the beaten path. One such is Elberry Cove near Broadsands beach in Paigton. After a short rural walk through fields and country paths you’ll come to a prime location that’s a favourite amongst locals. Fish caught there regularly include Mackerel, Bass and Flounder, with the occasional cod making an appearance.

Shore fishers will also find good fishing to be had from the piers in Torquay and Babbacombe. Meanwhile, all of the local harbours offer regular excursions out to sea for anglers of all experience levels and persuasions, ranging from family orientated fishing to deep sea shark fishing.
The towns of the South Devon coast also cater well for fishing breaks, with plenty of bait and equipment shops whose owners will be happy to advise you on the best fishing spots on the Riviera and the types of fish that are out there.
