About this fishery

Brown trout
Gwynedd, Wales

Blaenau Ffestiniog, in the centre of the spectacular scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, is undoubtedly a good centre for any angler who enjoys catching wild brown trout in beautiful surroundings.
The Cambrian Angling Association has its headquarters here, and offers excellent lake fishing in wild surroundings.

The association was formed on the 2nd of June, 1885, when a public meeting was held in the old Dolgarreg Ddu school in Blaenau Ffestiniog, due to a few local gentlemen feeling the need to protect the fishing on the lakes and rivers. At the time, trout and salmon were taken from the waters by any means possible, from the popular otterboard to dynamite!

We owe these early anglers a huge debt of gratitude, for acquiring the fishing rights on the many lakes and rivers in the area, and for keeping them wild and natural, giving us the opportunity to enjoy them today.
