Welcome to the website of Bangor on Dee Salmon Anglers, offering some of the finest Salmon fishing available on the Welsh river Dee. It is also worth noting that in low water conditions big fish cannot run upstream of Bangor on Dee, so our lower Beats are the ones to try in such conditions.

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.
