The association has fishing rights on 16 miles of both banks of the river Rheidol from Devils Bridge to the sea. The river enjoys an international reputation as one of Wales's premier salmon and sea trout fisheries with double figure specimens of both species being caught on a regular basis.

There are around forty recognised pools from the aptly named "Quarrry pool" to the delightfully named "Troedrhiwlas pool" (the foot of the blue hill). The flow of the river is largely governed by a hydroelectric scheme which can cause the river level to rise very quickly and unexpectedly. Whilst this can be problematic if night fishing, it does also mean that the river can go into spate even on a dry summers day!

Wading rivers always carries a risk, but extra special care is needed in the Rheidol, as generating water can cause the river level to rise quite considerably in just a few minutes.

Fly, spin, earth worm and prawn fishing are allowed within the specified dates.

This is part of Aberystwyth Angling Association waters, so a day ticket here is valid for all other Aberystwyth AA waters on that date.

Rules and Regulations
  • An online catch return MUST be completed after fishing
