Ogmore River Mouth
The River mouth is a popular for several reasons. Firstly it is capable of being fished even when the weather is poor. It is one of the few local venues you can fish when the wind blows south wersterly, as it seems to do a large percentage of the time in South Wales. Secondly it can be fished in several different ways.
Standard beachcasting tactics work well where the river enters the sea with codling, bass conger eel and turbot the target species. The river mouth is also a great place for lure fishing for bass, where if conditions are favourable fish up to 10lb + have been known to come on plugs and plastic soft baits.
Fly fishing has also been known to lure bass and migratory fish such as Salmon and Sea trout to the net. Further up stream flounder and dabs can be targeted using small hooked paternoster rigs , watch leads and mud rag as bait. Hybrids to 4lb have been known to come out in early Autumn.
Last but not least there is the thick lipped mullet that frequent the area around the sewer farm bridge. They can be caught using either float or ledger tactics with favoured baits being bread, mud rag or sweetcorn. The optimum time of the tide to fish is debatable, although best catches tend to come 2 hours either side of high water.
