Description

Llandovery Angling Association runs two fisheries on the Towy, above and below Llandovery. The Association fishing extends to over seven miles above Llandovery, at least half of which is double bank.

The general character of the upper river is very different to the water below the town. The upper river channel is predominantly narrower, and runs through rock faced gorges interspersed by deep holding pools. Some pools such as Dolauhirion, Tairheol and Divlyn are famous for their past reputations of holding large numbers of salmon and sewin. Unchanged for centuries these lies that the fish favour, have deep ledges and channels with a gravel bottom. For the solitary angler such waters can be very exciting to explore, working upstream with a running worm or an enticing spinner.

Sewin can be caught as early as May. However fish are more numerous in the months of July and August. The latter part of the season offers a better opportunity for catching salmon.

Lower Towy fishing below the town of Llandovery (including the farms of Llwynjack, Glantowy and Cwmgwyn):

This beat extends to over three miles of double bank fishing starting at the black railway bridge below the town, and ending down stream at Cwmgwyn Farm. There is easy access to the river from several locations, which are well signposted along the A4069 road to Llangadog as indicated on the map.

This reach of river could be described as classic fly fishing water for sewin which is easily covered with a single handed fishing rod.

The beat contains several deep holding pools interspersed by productive runs and riffles. The river bank has plenty of vegetation to provide cover for resting fish, but there is ample room for casting and the wading is easy and safe over the clean gravel river bed.

During a wet spring, large sewin can be caught in late April and May can be a very good month, when fish well in excess of ten pounds have been caught. The main run of sewin, often averaging four to five pounds, usually appear from the middle of June onwards. July, August and September can be good for the smaller shoal sewin and salmon become more numerous as the season progresses.

Up to date news and catch reports during the season can be found on on the

Llandovery Angling Facebook Page.
