GameFishing Pysgota Gem


Cwncarn Angling Association


Established in 2013 Cwncarm AA has fishing at Cwncarn Forest on a 1 acre gin clear spring fed lake stocked with brown trout 1 to 1.5lbs in size. The lake also has carp, tench, bream, barbel and roach. All fishing is Catch and Release and this is relected in the price of membership which is inexpenseive as is the day ticket. The club also has a stretch of the river Ebbw between Cwncarn and Crosskeys Rugby Club grounds. Permits from the visitors centre at Forest Drive, call 01495 272001 or from Greens Tackle in Pontllanffraith.

The club did some excellent work for disabled, children and able bodied adults who wanted to try fishing. grafting to raise funding for stock and using suitably qualified instuctors they ran session on Saturday mornings but had to stop on May 2018 because poachers, mergansers, goosanders and cormorant have slaughtered the stocks of fish. I do hope that they can gain more funding there's not enough of this selfless work being done, good luck to you all.
