Fishing is a very popular activity here at Watermouth Cove, well known for the local fishing 'marks' up on the headland, down in the Cove, or sometimes in the harbour.  A variety of frozen bait and fishing accessories are on sale in our shop, all you need is patience!

For years and years fishermen from all walks of life have spent many an hour casting their lines out over the rocks or into the Cove, with Watermouth boasting some great catches both from our experienced local fishermen and indeed the young'uns fishing for the first time.

All our guests staying on site are able to fish as much as they want for no charge!

If you aren’t on site and ‘wish to fish’, we have a fishing permit available with the charge for this being £50 for the whole year including your parking, which works out less than a pound a week. This is the option our locals go for, allowing you to come as much and whenever you like! However, if you’re down here on holiday and wish to only come a few times, we charge £2 per person to fish each time, plus parking. There is a parking meter in the car park area.
