The Taf Fechan rises in the Brecon Beacons and is controlled by Pontsticill Reservoir. The river converges with the Taf Fawr at Cefn Coed, Merthyr Tydfil to form the river Taff. Approximately 4½ miles of fishing providing the angler with wild brown trout fishing and the occasional stocked fish.

The majority of the Taf Fechan is rural with the first 1½ miles running over rocky, sometimes deep water and through the Taf Fechan Gorge. The next three kilometres start with deep gutters and then tend to be smaller stream with only wild natural brown trout. If you can fish this little river when the reservoir is over flowing slightly you will be guaranteed success on flies fished up or downstream.

Please note that this is Merthyr Angling Association water and exclusivity cannot be guaranteed. However with 4½ miles of river there is ample fishing for more than 1 angler.
