Fishing in Pembrokeshire

It will get you. Hook, line and sinker! Fishing in Pembrokeshire can be addictive.

We’re lucky enough to have some of the best fishing in Wales, be it sea fishing, game fishing or coarse and stillwater fishing - you’ll find it here.

Pembrokeshire is rightly famous for its bass fishing, and has a wealth of readily accessible surf beaches, some of which are many miles long, providing great fishing. Others nestle in sheltered coves that provide a refuge for fish and fishers in stormy weather.

The rugged shoreline of Pembrokeshire also offers outstanding opportunities for sea anglers. Bream, Bass, Mullet, Wrasse, Conger, Rockling, Pollack, Mackerel, sharks and rays are some of the more popular angling quarries.

Taking a fishing trip from Tenby, Saundersfoot, Dale or St Davids is a great way to catch something scrumptious for the barbecue; mackerel usually. It’s also a great way to see the Pembrokeshire coast and its marine wildlife (link to whales and dolphins page). Trips are perfect for families.

Stillwater and coarse fisheries are available across the county providing pegs for all abilities. Carp Bream and Tench are usually the catch of the day with the odd Pike thrown in. If you forget your tackle, don’t worry you can usually hire a rod and get bait.

Game fishing is mostly found on the Teifi, Eastern and Western Cleddau rivers. The rights to fishing are either held by the landowner or one of the fishing clubs dotted along their banks. Most clubs have day permits available; perfect for visitors.

Tuition is available whether you’re taking up the sport for the first time or wishing to improve your skills. There’s a chance you’ll be taught by a former world champion.
