The Gwydyr Fishery History.
The land and rivers around Betws-y-Coed in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park are owned by the ancient Gwydyr Estate who lease fishing rights to various bodies for the renowned Salmon and Sea Trout fishing on their estate.
The Gwydyr Fishery has been run by the propieters of the Gwydyr Hotel for over 150 years until a change in ownership has required the fishery to be managed by the Betws-y-Coed Angling Club .
The Gwydyr Hotel is now under the ownership of Dawn and Robert Harren who welcome fishermen to stay at the hotel which has been fully refurbished to a high standard and they plan to offer facilities to fishermen and women who stay at the hotel.
The Gwydyr Fishery comprises 2 beats on the Conwy. A lower beat of 2.0 miles from the confluence of the Llugwy and Conwy rivers , and an upper beat of 1.0 miles from above the Waterloo Bridge to the confluence of the Conwy with the Afon Lledr. It also includes 2.0 miles of water on the lower reaches of the Afon Lledr. Salmon and Sea Trout are caught on these waters.
Season tickets are available for up to 20 rods through the Club Secretary and Day and weekly tickets can be purchased at the Pendyfryn Stores ( Paper Shop ) in Betws-y-Coed
The fishery endeavours to promote Fly Fishing but other methods such as bait,spinning and shrimp fishing are allowed under certain conditions.
