Fly fishing for trout and salmon
in the Mawddach estuary.
Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing
Penmaenuchaf Hall Hotel is privileged to have complimentary fishing permits with the Dolgellau Angling
Association. These fishing permits cover thirteen miles of prime sea trout and salmon pools on the
spectacular Mawddach estuary and its tributary the river Wnion. The original Penmaenuchaf Home Beat
is along the Mawddach estuary just a short walk from the hotel.
For up-to-the-minute reports, refer to the
"Trout & Salmon" magazine or contact us. Proprietor, Mark Watson, is himself a keen fisherman
and is always pleased to advise.

Brown and Rainbow Trout Fishing
Fly fishing on Llyn Cynwch
just outside Dolgellau.
The limpid waters of Llyn Cynwch, just outside Dolgellau, are stocked thoughout the year with high quality
brown and rainbow trout. The hotel's complimentary DAA permits can also be used at Llyn Cynwch and
fish may be caught on fly or bait.
For another fishing treat, take the single-track Cader Road
Cregennan Lakes. Llynnau Cregennan were once part of the original Penmaenuchaf Estate, and the
twin lakes offer fly fishing at the feet of the dramatic Cader Idris whose crystal clear streams
feed the lakes.
Should visitors wish to cast their net wider, there are well stocked reservoirs such as Llyn Brenig,
Llyn Celyn, Llyn Trawsffynydd and Llyn Clwedog. All within a 45 minute drive from the hotel and all
providing first class rainbow and brown trout fishing in beautiful locations.
Evening sea fishing
Being only five miles from the coast, Penmaenuchaf is in an excellent location for sea fishing enthusiasts.
For a day to remember, boat trips from Barmouth harbour can be organised.
Fishing parties of up to twelve guests can be arranged with
Barmouth Viking II charter boat
or through the hotel.
Land lubbers might prefer to fish from the strand or the harbours and jetties in the mouth of the
Mawddach estuary. Shoals of bass top the bill and other sea fish that can be caught depending on season
include tope, bream, mackerel, whiting, conger eels and ray.
