River Trothy

The River Trothy is a nice looking small trout river than is lightly fished and very beautiful.  Our stretch is reserved for both fly and worm fishing.

3 km of right bank from the field below Jingle Street bridge up to Dingestow Bridge.

Plus 3.2 km of right bank from St Dingat’s Church at Dingestow to the orchard of Lower Llantrothy Farm.

The best fishing spots

The river is quite challenging to fish as in most sections has quite steep banks and is quite overgrown.

The best fishing spots are just upstream of St Dingat’s Church (cleared in 2011) and at Lower Llantrothy Farm (cleared in 2012)
