Ogwen Valley Angling Association provides two main river beats each of approximately 2 miles in length double bank fishing. A relatively short river at 7 miles in length, it provides good sea trout fishing throughout with a strong run of salmon and grilse salmon. The association offers angling for wild trout in four upland lakes, the largest and most accessible of which, Llyn Ogwen, is stocked regularly with rainbow trout during the fishing season. Wild brown trout are found in relative abundance in the waters of the main river and its small upland tributaries also which offer adventurous anglers a diversity of challenging environments for small stream angling .The river catchment boasts some of the most celebrated scenery in upland Snowdonia and a diversity of river conditions to tantalize all anglers, from the novice to the experienced rod. As a spate river, rain is rarely frowned upon by anglers in these parts and a rising water is the good omen most anglers relish upon the river, whilst a brighter day and a strong breeze draws rods to the lakes. Whilst some restrictions apply, most angling methods prove successful upon these waters, however as local anglers have often proven, command of varied angling methods and techniques brings reward to anglers willing to vary their tactics.
