Our Fishing

River Tawe. We own or control most of the fishing in the River Tawe from Ynysmeudwy downstream to Morriston. The Tawe runs down the Swansea Valley and enters the sea at Swansea (Abertawe).

The uppermost boundary is the Cwmdu Brook, Ynysmeudwy. Thence downstream both banks, to the upper limit of the Inco Recreation Ground.

From the lower boundary of the Inco Works downstream both banks to the Beaufort Weir, Morriston, EXCEPT FOR:

Upper Clydach River (tributary of River Tawe). From the confluence with the Tawe upstream through Cwmdu Glen.

Lower Clydach River (tributary of River Tawe). From the confluence with the Tawe up to the Lon Bridge.

River Gwili (tributary of River Loughor). The right bank at Geubren Farm, above and below the old Pont-y-Geubren bridge.

River Cilieni (tributary of River Usk). Upstream from the confluence with the Usk for 1,300 yds, some single bank, some double - see map.
