Fishing from Ilfracombe Pier

Fishing from Ilfracombe Pier

 

The difference between tides by the pier is large, the seawater comes up a long way, yet in fair weather, fishing from the pier can be a joy. There is easy wheelchair access and that there is no distance casting required, it makes the pier a good spot for the disabled angler

The pier at Ilfracombe can be fished with both light or heavy tackle, big baits cast out towards the sea can bring in dogfish or conger eels. Fishing towards the harbour will be suitable for lighter gear, for those species that are attracted to the cover provided by the pier itself and the moored boats.

You will lose some gear, best be prepared.

Float fishing near to the pier can be fun during the summer, with mackerel, whiting, pouting, garfish caught. Out on to the sandy areas, toward the harbour wall is more likely to be small sole or whiting.


'Just back from a 3 night stay. Our first time at this site and we were very impressed .. friendly staff, 1st class facilities and a perfect setting, an ideal base from which to explore Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. Fantastic weather made for a pretty good Easter weekend!. Will be back again!!' .. The Lloyd family

 


A super site and location

Stayed here last year, great pitch with sea view, next to the very best dog run we have experienced.

Well planned out site with private pitches separated by shrubbery making the whole site luscious and picturesque.

Had wonderful one to one art tuition from Chris, would highly recommend for any budding artist. Will definitely return.

We have been camping at Warcombe Farm for several years. On our first few visits it was just a field with a basic toilet and shower block, but a lovely, handy location. Over the years it has changed ownership and been greatly improved.

The new facilities are the best you will get in any campsite. We will again be spending Whitsun week camping with the children, meeting up with like-minded friends and hoping for better weather than last year, although we still had a great time! Looking forward to this years week long break tremendously. A campsite not to be beaten anywhere!
