Welcome to the website of Bangor on Dee Salmon Anglers, offering some of the finest Salmon fishing available on the Welsh river Dee.

Every year many good fish are taken by both experienced members and guests alike. We hold regular meetings and working parties where, as well as maintaining the fishery, we can meet fellow Members, forge new friendships and strengthen the ethos that has made BODSA what it is today... a community.

Although Salmon runs are reported as having declined in recent years in most UK rivers,the Welsh Dee still maintains a healthy run of fish and there are hopeful signs of a returning Spring run.

Whilst the name of the club suggests it is purely driven by the pursuit of Salmon, BODSA caters for most anglers wishing to fish our beautiful river for salmon, sea-trout (sewin) and brown trout as well as grayling and coarse fish.  The Dee holds superb dace, chub, barbel and pike, as well as some very big perch. Please visit our Galleries and the 'Fish to be Caught' menu for more detail.

If you are interested in membership of our association please click here and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

For Wednesday, 20th May

Wednesday 20th May:

First, let me tell you that the river is looking great in spite of the recent rain. At the moment it's a bit more than a foot above normal, falling slowly, and about the colour of barley sugar. Perfect!

It really fishes well at this height and there are lots of fish around. For light fishing for trout, a bit less water makes life easier but for salmon, this is about as good as it gets. The forecast for this area is pretty good for the rest of the week...
