Canoeing & fishing
You are welcome to canoe on the East Lyn River from Watersmeet House down to Lynmouth between 1 October and 31 March, if there is enough water in the river.
Before you visit
Read our canoeing leaflet and visit our webcam. If the water level is 'green' you are welcome to canoe. If the water level is 'red', it's too low for safe paddling.
The season runs from 1 March - 30 September (catch and release only until the 16 June).
Sea trout and brown trout
The season runs from 15 March - 30 September (no worm or maggot until 1 June).
Day and week permits are available from Watersmeet House and other local businesses, for more information please download our leaflet.
The salmon and sea trout on the East Lyn river at Watersmeet are currently suffering from a disease. It is not yet clear what the disease is, but for conservation reasons the Environment Agency have placed a ban on fishing on this stretch of the river.
