The number of season permits is restricted to 10. There are also three discretionary day permits available to permit holders who may wish to take a companion fishing. these need to booked in advance (£10:00)
In addition to brown trout, the R.Vyrnwy normally holds sizeable grayling and ocasional species of coarse fish including chub. As the Fishery is conservation minded, we do not wish to eliminate these species...they can provide good sport on a fly line at times when game fish are showing little activity. If fish are not required for the table, please handle with care and release them unharmed.
