The Eastern and Western Cleddau are two of Pembrokeshire’s famous rivers, which come together to form the Daugleddau Estuary. The Eastern Cleddau rises in the foothills of Mynydd Preseli, flowing in a south westerly direction for around 22 miles, the last 4 of which are tidal. The two branches of the Western Cleddau meet at Priskilly, before flowing south through Wolf’s Castle. From here it flows through a spectacular gorge to Haverfordwest, where it becomes tidal.

Both rivers are fast flowing and offer excellent fly fishing opportunities for sea trout (sewin), salmon and brown trout. The larger sewin start running these rivers from mid May onwards, with the best months being June, July and August. The best of the salmon fishing is from mid August onwards with usually a good autumn run. Brown trout fishing is available all through the season.
