Carmarthenshire has many beautiful beaches, coves, inland waterways and peaceful riverbanks, with the opportunity to catch sea trout (known as “sewin” in Wales), brown trout and salmon.
Game fishing

The River Tywi is one of the finest sewin rivers in Europe. The county’s longest river, stretching 75 miles and is also known for its salmon.

The River Teifi, the second longest river, flows west to east from the stunningly beautiful Cambrian Mountains along the county’s northern border and offers 50 miles of fishing.

There are also the Cowin, Cynon, Dewi Fawr and Taf Rivers, where you’ll find trout in abundance. The River Usk rises in the Black Mountains on the slopes of the Carmarthen Fan above the Usk Reservoir, then tumbles through the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park. Great fishing for salmon and trout.
