Dores is our largest water being about 9 acres.

Most swims are accessed from the Rackerhayes car park although the backwaters are reached by driving to the end of Homers Lane at Kingsteignton (g.r.869729) where there is a padlocked gate, opened with an Association key. Please note this gate must be locked at all times after access or leaving the site. 

This pond holds a large head of carp with numerous twenty and some thirty pound specimens; the tench are superb with the average fish being about 6lbs,

There are a number of floating platforms on this pond, which allow the (Full Senior only) angler to get right out onto the water. All species are present with some big eels and excellent bream to double figures, with a good head of silver fish and perch.
