Canals Trust


The Canals Trust have over 2,000 miles of waterway to look after for the many interest groups who use them. With so much water it is no wonder that fishing is high on the list of activities.

The Trust issues a Waterway Wanderers Permit that entitles you to fish on an impressive amount of water throughout England and Wales (for just £20).

Afon / River

The Towy (Tywi)


Runs 70 miles south east from the Cambrian Mountains to the sea 10 miles from Camarthen. There is access to fishing along the length of the river and on its main tributaries: Cothi, Gwili, Bran and Sawdde from either private sources or on the many angling association beats. The river is famous for its sea trout fishing with double figure fish being taken regularly on the Towy however there are good runs of salmon especially from July. The river is a spate river and benefits from a good down pour. Salmon returns in 2006 totalled over 600 while the best year for sea trout in recent years was in 1999 when nearly 7000 fish were taken.

Sadly due to intensive agricultural farming the fishing has declined. Clubs are trying to get the Welsh Government to intervene to stop illegal discharge of bullshit (the farms produce cattle on an industrial scale and the authorities provide the bull at a simliar level) into the river at night. It is poisoning this illustrious water and faith in it's stewardship.
