Berwyn Arms

Berwyn Arms

This is one of the main CADAC beats and offers anglers a massive variety of fishing. Members with the relevant permits can fish for Salmon, Sea Trout, Brown Trout and Grayling.

This is a popular beat with fly fishermen, bait and spinner fishermen and consists of slow and fast water, riffles and glides.

Both parking and access is excellent and there are huts and benches along the whole of the beat. Recent arrangements have resulted in riverside parking spaces in two places on this highly productive beat. This stretch of water is also the home of the famous and productive Tailor's Pool.

Night fishing for Sea Trout is allowed until 3am

Rules for Tailor's Pool

Due to the popularity of this pool we have applied specific rules for the area known as Tailor's Pool. They are as follows: -

4 anglers only on the pool at any time, 2 hours limit no return within 4 hours.

Anglers must sign in at the hut before fishing, there is no walking time allowance.

Please ensure gate between Berwyn hut and Taylor's hut is closed as livestock may be in the field.
