The Fishing Passport: River Irfon (Llanfechan) - Fishing in Wales

The Fishing Passport: River Irfon (Llanfechan)

Approximately 1 mile of left bank river Irfon fishing, 4 or 5 miles from the confluence with the main Wye.

Situated amongst the stunning scenery of the Irfon valley, this fishery offers trout and grayling anglers the chance to escape to a very peaceful and secluded part of the upper Wye catchment. Given the right water conditions, there is also the chance of a salmon, especially in the autumn (salmon season extends to Oct 25th on the Irfon). The presence of grayling means that the fishery remains open all year round.

A mixture of bedrock and gravel, the wading difficulty varies from pool to pool. Access to the water is easy with a well-trodden path along the length of the fishery. Parking is around 250m from the river.
