Devoke Water


Ravenglass, Cumbria

Fishery Information

Devoke Water is actually the largest tarn in the Lake District. However, it is at an altitude of 766ft which means it has great views when you are fishing it. Because of how high up it is, it means there’s not a lot of plants or vegetation around the edges, this means it suits fly fishermen really well as there’s not a lot to get in the way.

This lake is really deep with the biggest depth being 46ft.

Fishing is great from May onwards as that’s when the fish can be spotted near the surface. For the best results, we recommend fishing in the evening during the summer months.

No matter whether you are an expert or beginner, you will be sure to catch plenty here.

2 trout can be taken home each day.

Motorboats are not allowed on this lake, but rowing boats are.

It is strictly a members-only lake and any members have the right to evict non-members from the lake.

What size do the fish go to?

It’s not known what size the fish are.

What tactics work well?

The summer evenings are the best time to fish if you want to catch.

What facilities are on site?

There are no facilities on site.

Is parking available?

There is not a dedicated car park for he fishery, but you can park nearby but please don’t park on the track itself as this could block the road for other users.
