Welcome To The Pembrokeshire Anglers Association

The Pembrokeshire Anglers Association is a long established fishing association that owns and leases approximately 15 miles of prime fishing on the Western Cleddau River and its tributaries and also has beats on the Eastern Cleddau. The Western Cleddau waters stretch from the fast flowing upper reaches to the tidal areas above Haverfordwest.

The main river, renowned for its excellent run of migratory fish, offers the visiting and local angler a vast choice of conditions and productive pools in some truly unspoilt natural surroundings. Indeed, the whole Cleddau catchment area has been designated a Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI) and is host to a wide variety of wildlife including otters, kingfishers, herons, duck and dragonfly.

 
brownieThe season runs from 1st April to 17th October

Angling methods include legered worm, artificial lures and fly fishing. Many anglers in particular look forward to the runs of the sewin (Sea Trout) entering the river from early May and providing some outstanding fishing.

Each season, specimens approaching (or even over!) double figures are caught along with numerous fish in the 2 to 5lb range. At other times of the season, beautifully marked wild brown trout can provide some excellent sport reaching one and a half pounds. There is always a good chance of catching a salmon, particularly in the latter stages of the season when there is often a good run of grilse. The salmon average 5 to 8lbs but again, specimens of 15lbs plus can be caught!

PAA enforces a strict bag limit of four fish per angler per day, but whenever possible encourage anglers to join the growing number of anglers who are returning the majority of their fish to the river.
