Blaenau Gwent

Blaenau Gwent South East Wales

Blaenau Gwent, which rests at the top of the valleys below the Brecon Beacons, between Merthyr Tydfil and Torfaen, has mostly coarse on offer, with game fishing available at Cwmtillery Reservoir. A popular attraction in Blaenau Gwent is Parc Bryn Bach in Tredegar, which has a 36 acre man-made lake that has become one of the premier fishing hotspots of South Wales and a firm favourite with local anglers. The lake is stocked with a variety of course fish including 20 – 30lbs of prize common carp. Day and season fishing tickets are available at the Visitors Centre, with night fishing also available on request. The park also hosts Fishing competitions. Another popular attraction in Blaenau Gwent, which also offers coarse fishing, is Festival Park Visitor Centre, situated above the Sirhowy River, between Tredegar and Ebbw Vale.
