Fishing

A falling spate in June 2011, by the footbridge, Tesco, Bridgend.

 

The Ogmore Angling Association owns the rights to around 90% of the fishing on the River Ogmore. In addition is also has the rights to fish on sections of  the Ewenny River between Treoes Moors and the confluence with the Ogmore . 

Membership provides you with the opportunity to fish for salmon and sewin fresh off the tide in beautiful surroundings alongside excellent trout fishing for stocked and wild brownies.  Restocking takes place each year.  In addition limited grayling fishing is available in the winter.Our lower beats are distinguished by populations of bass, mullet and flounder.

Members together with day or weekly ticket holders may fish with only one rod and line at any time.


Although fly fishing is the most common method of fishing the water cater for other types of fishing. 

No spinning or minnow fishing with artificial or natural bait is allowed on water controlled by the club until the 16 June each year.  

The River Ogmore between Water Street Bridge, Bridgend and the hump-back bridge (near the tennis courts) Merthyr Mawr, is reserved for fly fishing until the 16 June.
