Gwnodl Bach

Gwnodl Bach

This is one of the most scenic CADAC beats and is in the main a double bank fishery. Looking downstream, the left hand bank is slightly longer and tends to be the most popular with CADAC members. This beat is a mixture of slow deep pools, shallower fast riffles and highly productive glides. Wading is easy although care should be exercised in the deeper water areas.

Members can enjoy excellent Trout and Grayling fishing and a good number of Salmon are caught on this beat each season. There are some fantastic areas for Salmon fishing with a fly.
