The Teign and Bovey are spate rivers running off Dartmoor granite and peat bogs.
However, Fernworthy reservoir which sits astride the South Teign considerably reduces the flow of the main river in low water conditions. For this reason the river tends to be primarily a sea trout river as this fish is less dependent on the critical heights of water compared to the salmon.
