The Loughor – also known as the Llychwr – rises in the Black Mountains and flows south-east through Ammanford to enter its estuary in the Bristol Channel below Pontar-dulais. Sea trout runs are claimed to be improving on this river with salmon more common than in the recent past. Best times for migratory fish are April-July and August-October. The river also contains brown trout. Associations offer the best chance of fishing for the visitor.

Rising to the west of the Loughor, the Amman flows east to meet the main stream at Ammanford. Again, it offers some salmon, sea trout (best from August) and brown trout. Access for visitors is limited.
