The Welsh Dee offers anglers some of the best river flyfishing in Wales. It is renowned for Salmon, Trout and Sewin but is particularly famous for its Grayling, with prolific numbers aGrayling high average size and plenty of 2lb+ fish.The Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, is a fish in the family Salmonidae, which is found in the northern Atlantic Ocean and in rivers that flow into the north Atlantic and, due to human introduction, the north Pacific

The Salmon and Sewin fishing is under-rated and although the spring runs of Salmon are not what they used to be, there are still good numbers of summer and autumn fish, with a good number over 10lb. Although fish are present in the river from early May, given good water conditions September or October are the best months. Grilse usually start running in July and Sewin are present in meaningful numbers from June onwards.

Brown trout start life on a diet of invertebrates, but later on some of them switch to eating fish. These larger, predatory individuals are sometimes known as ferox trout, and were once thought to be a different species.The Brown Trout fishing on the Dee starts on the 3rd March and ends on the 30th September, while the Grayling fishing starts on the 16th June and continues throughout the winter until the 14th March.Sea Trout / Sewin
