Work undertaken in the 1980’s showed that the average weight of 1,000 seatrout taken during May was a phenomenal 8lb.


This work also confirmed the existence of a good early spring run in April and May which extends the angling season favourably compared to many other rivers.  “One springtime shoal at Abercothi boasted 150 or more seatrout, the smallest of them getting on for 4lb.” (Trout and Salmon, May 1995).  When it comes to seatrout few, if any, British rivers can compare with the Towy system in terms of the total rod catch.

The record at Abercothi is a 51 lbs salmon taken there in 1931.
