The Rhyl & St Asaph Angling Association offers around 20 miles of salmon, sea trout and wild brown trout fishing on the rivers Clwyd, Elwy and Aled.
These rivers are situated amid stunning scenery in the Vale of Clwyd and the Elwy Valley, North Wales. The Association controls 18 beats, several of which it owns. The river Clwyd is one of the most productive sea trout fisheries in Wales with regular catches of fish in the 5 – 10 lb range.
Some are reserved for members only and some are bookable by members to ensure there is no overcrowding. The association also has a two acre spring-fed reservoir located in beautiful surroundings near Denbigh, stocked with rainbow trout. This is exclusively for members’ use.
We also now have two bank rods for Llyn Brenig (fly only for rainbows) and Llyn Alwen (multi method) for trout and coarse fish. (Valid on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from January 1st – December 31st 2019)
A reciprocal arrangement with Llangollen-Maelor AA now also gives our members access to the River Dee (the Welsh Dee) for salmon, sea trout, brown trout and grayling fishing through the year. (2 rods bookable through Foxons Tackle).
The club beats on these rivers and their tributaries offer undoubtedly the best game fishing in the area. They are well known for their sea trout fishing, or sewin, as it is known locally. Beat maintenance and habitat improvement are high on our agenda and during 2018 our working parties carried out 815 man hours of work on our owned and rented beats. (Thanks to the effort of our river keeper John and Richard his assistant).
In 2017 our members caught 495 sea trout (86% were released), 12 salmon (100% released), and 636 wild brown trout (100% released). 468 rainbow trout were caught in our lake, of which 450 were returned to grow bigger.
VISITOR PERMITS AND DAY TICKETS TO FISH OUR WATERS ARE AVAILABLE THROUGH OUR WEBSITE OR AT FOXONS TACKLE, ST ASAPH
