Salmon Fishing

The CADAC Salmon fishery is the largest on the Dee and in most years accounts for approximately 20% of the total river rod catch. It's not uncommon for the annual catch to exceed 100 fish in a season and as a Club we welcome the use of all legal angling methods.

Our waters are extremely variable - we have some fantastic fly fishing water whilst other stretches are more suitable for spinner fishing.

Certain waters have Beat specific rules and these can be viewed here.

Salmon Fishing tends to be a case of being in the right place at the right time and it's certainly a case of getting the fishing hours in. The most successful CADAC anglers are regularly seen fishing their favourite Beats and report double figure catches on an annual basis.

Whilst there is no magical pattern the ones below have been successful over the years on CADAC waters.

In an effort to restore the Welsh Dee Salmon stocks CADAC have adopted a Dee Fishery Association proposal click here for details. As a result CADAC return rates have increased dramatically - have a look at this video which was filmed on our waters and shows best practice when returning fish.
