Set in the majestic Llangollen valley, the Glyndwr Preserve offers 2½ miles of double bank river Dee fishing. It is some of the best grayling fishing in the UK (the international grayling competition is held on the Dee every year) and has a fine head of wild brown trout.

Up to 6 day ticket anglers can fish the water on any day (4 bookable via WUF). Also, members of the club that own the water may also be salmon fishing from 3rd March to 29th June, although it is unlikely that they will be on the water at this time (trout and grayling anglers must give way to salmon anglers). With 2½ miles of river, however, there is easily enough space.

Wading is of mixed difficulty and care must be taken. Buoyancy aids must be worn at all times. Please note that this fishery does not have a wash-off policy.


Access arrangements are in place for this section of the Dee. For the period 18th October to 31st March, canoeing can take place when the river is 3ft or over on the Coed Y Glyn gauge at 8:00am i.e. when fishing is not possible.

Permission has also been given to canoe on Wednesday and Saturdays between 9.30am and 12.30 (launch times) during the 1st January to 29th June period. All canoes should be off the water by 1.30pm and day tickets will be ½ price for Wednesdays and Saturdays during this period.
