Another of the great game fisheries of Wales, the Teifi rises near the Teify Pools not far from Pontrhydfendigaid in mountain country. It then flows southwest through its famous valley via Tre-garon, Lampeter, Llandyssul and Newcastle Emlyn to enterCardigan Bay at Cardigan. The reachesof the river around Tregaron are rated some of the best trout fly fishing in Wales. Sea trout – which enter the river from July – rarely get this far up river though salmon catches can be good here if there’s plenty of water on. Lampeter, in the middle reaches, is rated similarly for salmon and trout, the spring run being in April and May with summer fish moving in according to the state of the river. Here, too, sea trout are occasional rather than regular. Llandyssul is one of the most popular centres with fishing excellent for all species. There was confusion as this Guide went to press surrounding the state of fishing around Newcastle Emlyn following the recent sale of the famous Cawdor Estates. Associations in the area were unable to give us information as to the continuation or otherwise of their fishing and visitors on this section of the river are advised to make the most careful enquiry for this reason. At Cenarth are the famous falls and, below them, the river boasts one of the last strongholds for fishing from coracles in the British Isles. The estuary of the river is rated good for bass and mullet. Reasonable access. Rod Licence: WNWDA (South West Wales Rivers Division) Llanybyther, DyfedTSTS 3 miles as marked by Llanybyther AasignsBB
