FACT: The River Taff supports a number of migratory fish, including salmon, sea trout and eel.
The River Taff is actually a combination of two rivers that rise from the Brecon Beacons and are controlled by reservoirs in the northern region of Merthyr Tydfil and converge at Cefn Coed to form this resourceful waterway. The River Taff has an illustrious reputation as being one of the premier trout rivers in the principality providing high quality fly fishing throughout the season. The average size of the River Taff’s trout is approximately ½ lb and ¾ lb but much bigger fish are present with instances of 3lb and 4lb fish caught on occasions.
Merthyr Tydfil also has an abundance of lakes and reservoirs to fish with day passes available for visiting anglers to purchase. Day tickets must be purchased prior to fishing with only two trout to be taken on a day ticket allocation.
Merthyr Tydfil also proudly has their own Angling Association.
