About Dever Springs

Dever quote

Dever Springs is situated beside the River Dever (a tributary of the legendary River Test), a big fish water where 20lbs-plus Rainbows and large Browns are taken each season.

The Fishery comprises two spring fed lakes totaling six acres and a half mile stretch of the River Dever. The well established lakes are abounding with aquatic fly life, which includes an abundant Mayfly hatch in season.

These crystal clear waters enable discerning anglers to stalk exceptional fish. Specimen fish taken at Dever include a British record brown of 28lbs 2ozs. The minimum stocking size is 4lbs, with 6lbs 8oz being average at the moment. Every angler coming to Dever Springs has a very real chance of taking double-figure fish. The lakes are stocked each day with top quality trout, reared within the complex.

Anglers are welcome to look around some of the stock ponds where the fish are reared before stocking into the lakes.

Car parking is adjacent to the lodge where the ticket office/shop, weighing shed, vending machine and toilet facilities can be found.
