Caerphilly

The county borough of Caerphilly stretches all the way from the Brecon Beacons all the way down to the mountain range south of the town of Caerphilly, that falls into Cardiff and the Bristol Channel. Caerphilly’s famously huge 13th century medieval castle has a series of moat lakes containing a variety of fish. The castle is also the residence of one of the Valleys’ many ghosts, the green lady. The River Rhymney that fishes coarse and game can be fished downstream of Bedwas bridge in the south. Northwards the Sirhowy and Ebbw flow through Caerphilly and contain salmon, brown trout and sea trout for game anglers. The Brecon and Monmouthshire canal winds back upwards through Caerphilly towards its close, passing through Risca in the south-east – and is fishable at this point
