Brown Trout

The Welsh Dee is not renowned for its Brown Trout fishing however in recent years the population has increased and anglers can enjoy some magnificent sport at certain times. The Dee tributaries can also provide excellent sport for those targeting wild fishing.


The Welsh Dee is recognised as the mecca of Grayling fishing amongst the UK and European Grayling fishing fraternity and is home to the prestigious Hanak European Grayling Festival.

Fish of 2lbs are common and there are specimens in excess of this.


Salmon Fishing on the Welsh Dee along with many other rivers sadly is not what it was. There are Salmon to be had, and success 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.

Sea Trout

The Welsh Dee is not known as a renowned Sea Trout river and angling effort is extremely low. Most fish are caught by Salmon or Trout and Grayling anglers during daylight hours. However the Dee encounters annual runs in excess of 10,000 fish every year and the rewards of night time fishing on the river are great during the summer months.
