A scenic stretch of the River Dee comprising of over one and a half miles of the left hand bank fishing with seven holding pools offering good salmon, sea-trout and grayling fishing, in fact the grayling fishing is some of the best in England and Wales. There is also a good stock of native brown trout. It generally has a good wading bottom, apart from in the Bonwms – but take care – floods can alter the depth without warning – use a wading stick and wear a life jacket.
