The Teign rises on the high moorland of the Dartmoor National Park beginning its life as two tributaries, the North and South Teign which come together near Chagford.


From Chagford, the river flows east through a steeply wooded valley passing local beauty spots such as Castle Drogo, Fingle Bridge and Steps Bridge near Dunsford. The fishing on this stretch of the river is managed by the Upper Teign Fishing Association.River Teign at Upper Ashton

From Dunsford,the river turns south flowing through the picturesque Teign Valley past Sowton, Bridford and Lower Ashton towards Chudleigh Knighton. Here the river enters the flood plain made world famous for its English China Clay and is joined by the River Bovey before flowing into the Teign Estuary at the market town of Newton Abbot. The Association’s waters include single and double bank fishing on much of this stretch of the river.River Teign at Chudleigh Weir

The Teign Valley is also home to a diverse range of wildlife. Ordnance Survey Explorer Map 110 covers the area of the Association’s waters.
