Bridgend County Borough, full of castles, picture-postcard villages and festivals throughout the year, is also a great place for fishing, whether on rivers (Ewenny, Kenfig, and Ogmore), or the sea along the Glamorgan Heritage Coast. Wilderness Pond in Porthcawl is currently being enhanced to help Bridgend justly compete with other areas of Wales in terms of lake fishing
