The Work of the Welsh Rivers Trusts

by David Griffiths

A great deal of work goes on “behind the scenes” on Welsh rivers to the benefit of all anglers.

Staffed by a mix of full and part time officers and an army of volunteers, projects are carried out which improve water quality and the adjacent environments.

There are six regional Welsh Rivers Trusts covering the entire principality. Click here for a map of their areas.

The following document shows an example of the extent of the scientific expertise being brought to bear. Of course, this isn’t solely for the benefit of anglers, but we most certainly do enjoy the fruits of their labour!

If you have a few spare hours here and there and want to get involved any of the local Trusts will be very pleased to hear from you. There are many ways to contribute.

I am actively involved in working with the West Wales Trust, Clwyd, Conwy & Gwynedd Trust and the Welsh Dee Trust, as well as the umbrella organisation, Afonydd Cymru. It is very rewarding to make even a modest contribution to some of the magnificent fisheries we all enjoy in Wales.
