Fish the Ogmore for salmon and sewin fresh off the tide in both natural and urban surroundings. Excellent trout fishing for stocked and wild brownies throughout our source-to- sea waters.
Established in 1891 the Ogmore Angling Association plays an integral part in the community of South Wales, protecting the health of the river and offering excellent, affordable game fishing along the River Ogmore and the rivers which contribute to it.
Club membership and visitor permits enable anglers to target salmon, sewin, grayling and brown trout from the streams in the hills down to the main river and finally to the estuary where these lower beats are distinguished by populations of bass, mullet and flounder.
Such a variety of species and habitats offer unrivalled sport to the discerning angler and this broad diversity ensures the chance to fish club waters no matter which conditions prevail ... well, almost!
We hope the web site will be a useful resource to members and visiting anglers alike.
Wishing you fair weather, good water and tight lines for the 2020 season.
