Fishing Guide Wales

BLAENAU GWENT


Blaenau Gwent, which rests at the top of the valleys below the Brecon Beacons, between Merthyr Tydfil and Torfaen, has mostly coarse on offer, with game fishing available at Cwmtillery Reservoir. A popular attraction in Blaenau Gwent is Parc Bryn Bach in Tredegar, which has a 36 acre man-made lake that has become one of the premier fishing hotspots of South Wales and a firm favourite with local anglers. The lake is stocked with a variety of course fish including 20 - 30lbs of prize common carp. Day and season fishing tickets are available at the Visitors Centre, with night fishing also available on request. The park also hosts Fishing competitions. Another popular attraction in Blaenau Gwent, which also offers coarse fishing, is Festival Park Visitor Centre, situated above the Sirhowy River, between Tredegar and Ebbw Vale.

and the Borders





By popular demand from visiting anglers I have been asked on many occasions
“Where best to go fishing including best facilities such as refreshments, toilets, disable access etc”
Therefore I have introduced for each venue within the guide my personal
1-5 star rating *****.
Including additional information, helping anglers decide where best to experience
this great sport of ours. I recommend that you phone first and check details before setting out. You will need a valid Environment Agency rod licence to fish at any venue listed
