Meadows Fishing

We no longer control the fishing on this section.

Railway bridge to chain bridge A5 side

Good fishing for trout and grayling with fly or worm from the railway bridge up to the Chain Bridge Hotel. The salmon pools are slow and deep waters are Ty Craig down to the sea-trout pool fish well with spinner or bait. The sea trout pool itself fishes well on higher water with fly or spinner. Access is gained from parking at Ystrad Hall car park.

Railway Bridge to Chain Bridge Hotel, Ruthin Roadside

This is quite difficult access but good for trout and grayling. Fishes well with a fly or worm. Access from the Tower Bridge or by parking at the Chain Bridge Hotel car park and fishing downstream. At Ty Craig there are very deep channels which are good for bait fishing and spinning for salmon.

Robbers Leap

This is the start of the Chain Bridge runs and is mentioned in George Borows ‘Wild Wales.’ It is named after a thief who escaping from justice jumped the river at this spot to avoid his captors. The runs are good on low water for fly, spinner or bait. Access from the top car park of the Chain Bridge Hotel.

Kings Bridge to Horseshoe Falls

On the A5 side there is a deep slow pool above the bridge which is hardly ever fished. This is good with spinner or bait. In between this pool and Bishops run 

Bishops Run

Fish with spinner or fly for salmon. Also a good run for trout or grayling with fly. Access from car park A off the A5.
