Pembrokeshire Anglers Association Description:
The Pembrokeshire Anglers Association is a long established fishing association that owns and leases approximately 15 miles of prime fishing on the Western Cleddau River and its tributaries and also has a beat on the Eastern Cleddau. The Western Cleddau waters stretch from the fast flowing upper reaches to the tidal areas above Haverfordwest.
The main river, renowned for its excellent run of migratory fish, offers the visiting and local angler a vast choice of conditions and productive pools in some truly unspoilt natural surroundings.
Indeed, the whole Cleddau catchment area has been designated a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is host to a wide variety of wildlife including otters, kingfishers, herons, duck and dragonfly.

The season runs from 1st April to 17th October
Angling methods include legered worm, artificial lures and fly fishing. Many local anglers in particular look forward to the runs of the sewin (Sea Trout) enter the river from early May and provide some outstanding fishing.
Each season, specimens approaching (or even over!) double figures are caught along with numerous fish in the 2 to 5lb range.
At other times of the season, beautifully marked wild brown trout can provide some excellent sport reaching one and a half pounds.
There is always a good chance of catching a salmon, particularly in the latter stages of the season when there is often a good run of grilse.
The salmon average 5 to 8lbs but again, specimens of 15lbs plus can be caught!
PAA enforces a strict bag limit of four fish per angler per day, but whenever possible encourage anglers to join the growing number of anglers who are returning the majority of their fish to the river.
Disabled Fishing and Pool
Disabled anglers are especially well catered for with a superb purpose-built pool an fishing platform with easy vehicular access and picnic facilities.
This area is situated in Treffgarne Gorge.
