The Vale of Clwyd Angling Club


VCAC, in Denbight, have an enviable amount of fishing available to them. They have beats on 9 rivers and fishing on 5 lakes, wow!:

River Clwyd. 4 sections of the river with 9 different beats offering fishing for salmon, sea trout, brown trout.

Dee, 3 beats for brown trout, grayling, coarse fish. Acces to Bala DAA water for salmon back end on the Llandderfel beat.

Cledwyn, 1, one mile beat for brown trout and late season sea trout.

Elwy, 4 beats on a spate river for salmon, also wild brown trout.

Conwy, 600 yards at Waterloo Bridge, salmon and sea trout.

Wheeler, wild brown trout and tales of sea trout and escapee rainbows.

Llafar and Lliw. The Llafar is a wild trout water stocked from time to time while the Llwi is a wild trout water, any method except maggot.

Trywern, water is controlled by a dam on Llyn Celyn so heigths can vary suddenly leaving you stranded on the wrong bank. Fishing is for wild brown trout supplimented with stocks of fingerlings. Salmon back end when the artifical spates can spice up sport.

Tanat, no details.

The lakes are:

Llyn Clywedog, wild brown trout and over wintered rainbows.

Hafod Pools, pike and perch.

Llyn Glan-y-Gon wild brown trout, limited access as it is privately owned.

Llyn Cwmprysor, wild brown trout.

Llyn Tegid, quite a variety of species including gwnniad a freshwater white fish Coregonus pennanti found only on Tegid (Bala lake). Herein lies a tale of woe. As with other fisheries folk, in the past, fished for pike with ruffe as live bait. Some fish survived and escaped other were just tipped in the water at the end of session. The result here (and on lochs like Loch Lomond for example) is that the ruffe have thrived and feed on the spawn and fry of native species, in this case endangering the rare gwyniad. To save them I believe that stocks have been planted out in Llyn Arenig Fawr.

As well as the above the lake holds pike, perch, roach, bream, grayling, trout and some salmon in late season.

For all of the above the membership cost is very resonableand includes full membership game and coarse and coarse only. There are discounts for students 18 to 25, juniors 13 to 18, and over 65s. Under 12s fish for free. Apply on line.

Day and weekly tickets are also available online go to:
