Fishing on the River Dwyfor

With an average yearly catch of 2000 – 3000, the River Dwyfor is one of the best sea trout rivers in Wales.

Salmon runs start in September with the odd grilse caught before. The largest salmon to date weighed in at 33 lb.

The sea trout are mainly caught on the fly at night using traditional sea trout flies and some local patterns. Floating and intermediate lines are generally used. Large surface lures have become very popular and take some big fish.

Worms are used during the day and night if water levels are ok. Fishing when the river is in flood can be fantastic sport with the worm. If the river level is very high with thick chocolate colored water, trotting worms along the banks can produce some big fish. When the water starts to clear the spinner can be deadly. Mepps, tobys and rapalas are the most popular lures.

RIVER DWYFOR is mostly controlled by the Criccieth,Llanystumdwy and Distict Angling Association.
