Freshwater angling

Ceredigion is home to some of Wales’s best freshwater fishing, especially for sea trout (or ‘sewin’) plus salmon and wild brown trout.  The county’s best known rivers are the Aeron, Rheidol, Ystwyth and Teifi. The county has produced some of the best known Welsh anglers, including author and fishing champion, Moc Morgan.

As well as the river beats, there are reservoirs, lakes and pools plus purpose made fisheries.
