Twenty river beats

Our lowest beat on the River Elwy, not far upstream from the famous Junction Pool

A good beat double bank in places - with a variety of pools and runs. Can produce excellent fishing for all three game species.
PLEASE NOTE: Right hand bank at Spring Gardens Caravan Park closed until further notice. Also members parking space in the park must not be used at this time.

St Asaph Town Water - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

Quite a long beat starting about half a mile upstream of the towns road bridge.

An often overlooked beat, including the town water, Roe Parc and Spring Gardens. With the right water conditions can be very productive.

Bryn Polyn - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A short but productive beat on the river Elwy that should fish well at all times.

A steep walk down through the woods and back but well worthwhile for the peace and quiet of this beat. A large pool at the lower end should hold good fish.

Maes Elwy - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A prime beat owned by the association.

Always popular with the members. There's an excellent pool downstream of the weir. Has consistently produced nice fish on the fly at night. 

Maes Elwy Woods - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A double bank beat downstream of Pont yr Allt Goch.

Best fished from the left hand bank - can be waded with care in parts and often produces good fish including large brown trout.

Glan Llyn - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

An interesting beat upstream of Pont yr Allt Goch.

Includes some nice pools and a deep tree-lined run which can be waded in part with great care!
PLEASE NOTE: CLOSED FOR FISHING FROM MAY 20th 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Pont y Ddol - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A very popular beat, owned by the association. Some nice pools and runs.

You'd be surprised how quickly sea trout and salmon reach this part of the river Elwy given the right water conditions. A bit of a walk to reach some pools but well worth the effort!

Bron Heulog - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A double bank beat downstream of Llanfairtalhairn.

Fish can be here earlier than one may think.  Fishes best with some water on.

Fron Goch - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Elwy

A double bank beat upstream of Llanfair Talhaiarn. 

The beat on the right hand side downstream is shorter than the left.   We acquired this beat recently and work is required to clear access to some of the fishing.

Llansannan - Wild Brown Trout Fishing On The River Aled

A double bank beat on the river Aled downstream of Llansannan.

The club owns the beat on the river Aled, 4600m, both banks.  It's a  tranquil setting, best later in the season for migratory fish but has a head of resident brownies.

Lower Pont Dafydd - try for Salmon and Sea Trout fresh from the tide

Mostly double bank downstream of the A-55 flyover on the Chester side of St Asaph

Some deep pools on this beat, which is now our lowest beat on the River Clwyd. Good chance of sea-liced sea trout here. Tricky in parts for fly fishing but well worth a look.

Pont Dafydd - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A double bank beat upstream of the old A-55 bridge near St Asaph

Some nice runs and pools on this beat, which is our second lowest beat on the Clwyd. It doesn't take long for fish to reach here following a high tide. Has produced double figure sea trout in recent seasons.

Ysgubor y Coed - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

Approx. 1100 metres long this beat is owned by RASAAA

A bit of a walk from the parking area but some nice little spots to fish.

Wern Ddu - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A good beat of about 2,200 metres near the Farmers Arms

This beat has some good pools and runs suitable for fly fishing and spinning. Very popular with the members.

Lower Llanerch - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A leased single bank beat near Llanerch Hall.

This beat used to fish well in past years, recently re-acquired by RASAAA.

Llanerch - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A short beat upstream of the road bridge near Llanerch Hall.

Well worth fishing, some nice water to try with easy casting.

Bodfari - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A long single bank beat downstream of Pontruffydd road bridge.

Very popular with the members. Some excellent water an easy walk from the road, with easy relatively casting and a fishing shelter! The more adventurous will find some excellent runs and pools lower down the beat.

Upper Bodfari - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

A single bank beat leased, upstream of Lleweni Parc.

Typical Clwyd fishing. Be aware that there is often cattle in the field and the old parking corral is no longer serviceable.

Pont Clwyd - Wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing On The River Clwyd

Our highest River Clwyd beat.

Perhaps more suited to fishing for brown trout with a small rod but some good migratory fish must pass through here.

River Dee - Fishing on the Llangollen-Maelor Angling Association beats for wild Brown Trout, Sea Trout, Salmon and Grayling

A recripocal arrangement - we have 2 rods to fish on the Dee - Booking through Foxons

Approximately 10 miles of bank fishing on the Welsh Dee - regarded as one of the top grayling fisheries in Europe, and as a bonus also has wild brown trout, sea trout and Atlantic salmon.

See the Llangollen-Maelor AA website for beat details and their club rules. Please note they have some beats strictly reserved for LMAA members.

Llyn Crud y Gwynt

A two acre spring-fed reservoir stocked with rainbow trout by Rhyl and St Asaph Angling Association

Our only Stillwater, the Association leases this lake.  It is stocked with hard-fighting Rainbow Trout and also has a resident stock of Brown Trout (Some quite large). It enjoys an idyllic and peaceful setting and is open to members 364 days a year (Not Christmas Day). NEW: LAKE ONLY MEMBERSHIP ALSO AVAILABLE

Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen

Two very different fisheries on the moors near Denbigh

Llyn Brenig is a Fly Fishing Venue which regularly hosts international fly fishing competitions. The rainbow trout here have a reputation as hard fighters - probably because they are raised here and are fully acclimatised to the cold waters of Brenig! It is a fly-only venue.

Llyn Alwen nearby is also stocked with rainbow trout and also has wild brown trout and a stock of coarse fish (perch etc). You may fish here with fly, spinner or worm.

Rhyl and St Asaph AA have two tickets for members to fish either lake, on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. Please book in first at Foxons St Asaph and then present your membership card in the shop at Brenig prior to fishing.
