Where to Go Fishing in North Wales

Written By:


With over 84 miles of coastline if you want to go fishing in North Wales, this part of the world is your oyster!

Whether you like fishing in lakes, reservoirs or the sea, few places have the variety of fishing destinations that North Wales has to offer.

Sea Fishing in North Wales

Sea fishing is best practised on an organised trip. There are plenty of charter boats for hire with experienced, skilled skippers. In the harbour villages you can buy or hire fishing equipment and everything else you need for a successful trip.

If it is your first time out, you’ll find the boat crews happy to teach you and help. Here are some of the available charters:

Stingray Angling Charter, Boat House, Beach Road, Cemaes Bay

Basic reels and rods are supplied for amateurs and you’ll be fishing around the wrecks in deep waters. The boat trips cater for up to 8 and the crew will give free tips to anyone who might want them. Make sure you don’t forget to order bait when booking – call 01407 710 510 for more details and reservations.
