Lower Teifi River Conditions and Reports

Fishing Report for April 2017
Published: 19/03/2017 11:00:00

The start of the season nearly always produces a few salmon, and the big early sea trout begin to think of reasons why they shouldn't join them. Last season, a good number of fish in excess of 10lb were caught in April and May.


This time of year also sees the start of our trout season on the Teifi.


With nice fish being taken on our own "private beats" especially when things begin to warm up.


Ideal water heights in this area are 0.9 at Glan Teifi or 0.6 at Llanfair.

River Teifi Pollution Update

Latest News - March 2017

I am sure that many of you have read or heard about the the pollution incident that happened in the upper reaches of the river, nr Tregaron, during December 2016. It was a devastating and lethal incident that should never have happened nor be allowed to have happened. The source is thought to have been an anaerobic digester (a method used for concentrating animal waste and converting it into a usable chemical elsewhere.)

Details of how much of this toxic waste escaped from the tank is not yet known and investigations are still ongoing, however I believe it was a substantial amount killing hundreds of Salmon, Sewin and Brown Trout.

We believe that at least six miles of the upper river has been destroyed. Beats above Lampeter have been checked showing signs of fish life. We can say that down stream of Lampeter the fish have escaped unscathed.

Very little can be done after the event. my only hope is that the incident itself highlights the environmental importance that the disposal of slurry and other such toxic waste created by farming are done so responsibly at each stage.

I am pleased to say that the above has been a topic conversation amongst a number of farmers known to me personally.

Will keep you updated
