The club has beats on five rivers, the Tamar, Tavy, Meavy, Plym and Walkham. The rivers have different characters varying from the moorland streams on Dartmoor, where the upper reaches contain wild brown trout, to the mighty Tamar which has runs of sea trout and salmon.
All of the rivers rise quickly after rain on Dartmoor but unlike lowland rivers, the spates quickly subside. The scenery on Dartmoor is spectacular and the deep river valleys through which the rivers run, contain ancient oaks dripping with lichen. The tree lined, rocky river valleys are reminiscent of Scotland and Canada.
