Fishing in Denbighshire

Situated in the northern reaches of Wales, Denbighshire offers a picturesque backdrop for an unparalleled fishing experience. Blessed with a plethora of rivers, lakes, and coastlines, this region holds a wealth of opportunities for anglers of all skill levels.

Home to the Vale of Clwyd, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Denbighshire is primarily known for its outstanding river fishing. The River Clwyd, one of the main attractions in this county, is a thriving ecosystem hosting a range of species, including salmon, sea trout, and brown trout. Fly fishing enthusiasts will particularly enjoy the challenges and rewards this river presents, with its varied flow and clear waters making for an unforgettable experience.

The River Dee, another significant watercourse running through Denbighshire, is a hotspot for grayling and wild brown trout, offering more superb opportunities for fly fishing. Both rivers are managed carefully, ensuring that they remain healthy environments that continue to attract anglers year after year.

For those who prefer still water, Denbighshire offers numerous well-stocked lakes. The Llyn Brenig reservoir, located on the border between Denbighshire and Conwy, is one such location. Known for its outstanding natural beauty and rich brown and rainbow trout stock, Llyn Brenig has earned a reputation as one of the top fly-fishing venues in Wales.
