Long Description:
"Another popular area for the locals are the greenbanks on the Llanelli side of the river. But visiting anglers tend use the sand both sides of the river - bottom fishing in between the road and railway bridges. Winter can be exellent for the flounder, best bait being the local harbour ragworm. Summer fishing for bass, mullet, or flounder try bottom or float fishing. Beware the crabs can be a pest when the water is warmer.

Regular species include: flounders, dabs, some plaice, bass, mullet and during the winter whiting (if cold enough). Not so regular: turbot, brill, codling, scad, mackerel, sewing...

The only method of fishing to be used here is a plain ledger with a first choice bait of mud ragworm. Failing these lugworm should produce good catches. Two hooks is the simplest form and will catch many fish. Keep both hooks below the weight so that they are on the bottom at all times. Do not wade out as this could be dangerous should you step into a gully/pill and very often the flat fish will be behind a long distance caster. The fish here move in with the tide as it creeps shoreward, 2lb flounders have been caught in 5 inches of water. At the right time of the year catches can be very good with heavy bags taken. Average fish size in some parts are over 2lb. The village of Wernffrwd is an area that is capable of producing large bass late in the year. Favorite bait is soft crab, ledgered close to the bottom."
