Dartmoor: East Dart

Stannon Brook

Dartmoor: East Dart – Stannon Brook

A very small stream offering fishing for brown trout. The best fishing is found in the lower reaches, although this is technically challenging due to the abundance of natural flora and the size of the stream. Take only brook rods.

Parking & Access

Anglers should park at Postbridge and fish upstream.

Fishing Guide Videos

There are a large number of video guides to fishing on Dartmoor streams. In this the Field Sports Channel try for a fish on the River Dart in Devon.

“It’s some of the best-value trout fishing in England and it is available thanks to the Duchy of Cornwall Estate, owned by HRH the Prince of Wales. But do we get one – or has His Royal Highness had the lot?”
