The Alyn rises in the Clwydian hills on the Llandegla moors and flows some 30 miles before reaching its confluence with the River Dee. It runs through a limestone gorge in the Country Park in Loggerheads, so the water is alkaline. This is unusual in Wales where most rivers are acidic and so less fertile.
The Club manages water on the Alyn from the railway bridge in Rossett upstream to Wormswood at Gresford. This two and a half mile stretch of water includes a wide variety of fishing opportunities, from banks that edge open meadows to more wild stretches that flow through mature woodland.
No two seasons are ever the same on the Alyn, winter conditions often create new pools and riffles, there are always fresh challenges for all our anglers.
Water levels remain fairly constant throughout the fishing season, however, being a small rain fed river it can be affected very rapidly by rainfall, the river can gain 2 feet in a matter of hours! So please bear this in mind. It is advisable to check the river level via our link to the NRW web site before setting out.
