Glamorgan Anglers: River Ely

Glamorgan Angling club have fishing on the River Ely, from the St Fagans area down to the Cardiff bay barrage lake.

The upper stretch has brown trout, grayling and a few coarse fish. Lower down there are chub, pike, grayling, silvers and eels.

A river day and season ticket for the Ely (and Taff) are available from Garry Evans Tackle shop on Whitchurch Rd, Cardiff. Anyone can apply for a Taff/Ely only Season Ticket at any time.

The river Ely has been re-stocked in early 2021 with a variety of coarse fish species, including barbel.

River Ely – Very few reports but we do know that there are Perch, Chub, Roach, dace, and Barbel in the upper stretches around St Fagans and St Georges. The lower Ely does provide good Pike fishing, but it is a case of finding them. Roach and dace can be caught on the Lower stretch along with Bream if again you can seek them out.
