Free Fishing - Welsh Region - South East Area
There very little free fishing known to us in this area
The Afon Llwyd (River Clwyd) at Cwmbran, Newport Gwent, below the boating
lake down to the road bridge opposite Burtons Biscuits and approx. 100 yards
further is believed to be unclaimed / unknown ownership / free.
From Grid: 330767 MAP to
EA Rod Licence only required. No local angling clubs, Torfaen Bourough Council
or any known individuals lay claim to this little stretch. The Environmental
agency are also unaware of any ownership claim.
We are informed that local anglers that fish this stretch have tried really
hard to discover any reparian rights claimants - "as no one want the bailiffs
Free fishing fo brown trout and eel but also the odd / rare salmon.
Find the boating lake in Croesycieliog, Cwmbran, park up in the car park and
take the wooded path back behind you and away from the boating lake path and
simply follow the river until you see a good swim.
We are told that the best spot is directly under the road bridge where the river
hairpins towards Llantarnam Abbey.
Below the above mentioned 100 yard stretch is Llantarnam Abbey (the Sisters of
Joseph) and I suppose one could write / phone them asking permission to fish
there as well as there are a number of nice spots there.
