Teifi Trout Association Description:
Teifi Trout Association offers you world class fishing for sea trout, salmon and brown trout on some twenty four miles of the River Teifi – “Queen of Rivers” – and her tributaries.
The waters of the Teifi Trout Association begin at the upper tidal limit of the Afon Teifi two fields below the bridge at Llechryd. Mullet and flounders are present here as well as the three species of game fish which interest most of our members, salmon, sewin and brown trout. The TTA waters extend up from here to Abercych and on to Cenarth. Even in this lower part of the river the variety of terrain, a feature of all our waters, are notable.The confines of the water vary between long shallow runs to gorges and steep muddy banks which make the fishing interesting and at times challenging.
The lower part of the water fishes best in low water when the fish come up on the tide and wait for rain. Above Cenarth and the rock fault which creates the beautiful falls the river winds through prime agricultural land forming serpentine bends with wide deep pools as it flows down from Newcastle Emlyn.
Another fault in the land by the bridge at Emlyn forms a long rocky fall in the river fed by a huge meandering loop in the Teifi which protects Newcastle Emlyn castle on three sides.This part of the river has several hundred yards of deep slow water which fishes well to a spinner and worm . More meadow land and a series of runs and pools lie between Emlyn and Henllan where a deep gorge narrows the river to just a few yards. Above Henllan the river becomes slightly shallower and faster and offers good fly fishing, the fields are less wooded and the deep pools further apart.
In all the TTA controls just under thirty miles of prime fishing, it’s probably the best mixed game fishery in Wales.
