The River Dovey

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Dovey

The River Dovey (Afon Dyfi) lies in Mid Wales, the estuary forming the border between the counties of Gwynedd and Ceredigion . It rises in the small lake Creiglyn Dyfi at about 1,900 feet (580 m) above sea level, below Aran Fawddwy, before flowing south to Dinas Mawddwy and Cemmaes Road, then south west past Machynlleth, the only large town in its course, to Cardigan Bay at Aberdyfi. It shares its watershed with the River Severn and the River Dee before flowing generally south-westwards down to a wide estuary. Since the closure of the lead mines and the decline of the slate quarries, the Dovey is now a very clean river, with good runs of salmon and sea trout.

Fishing on the River Dovey

The Dovey is a particularly fine sea trout river, recording a ten year average catch (to 2009) of 1544 sea trout per season, with many double figure fish among them. Much of the fishing on the Dyfi is controlled by the New Dovey Fishery Association, based in Machynlleth. It controls about 15 miles of the river and offers weekly permits to visiting anglers on the lower river and day and season permits for the upper river, above Cemmaes Road.  Contact The New Dovey Fishery Association (1929) Ltd, The Plas, Machynlleth, Powys, SY20 8ER tel: 01654 702721.
