New Water For 2018, River Dee, Ridleywood.

St Helens Angling Association have acquired over ¾ mile of fishing on the River Dee, located at Ridleywood. Its-y-Coed, just outside Wrexham. The stretch is known to contain a good head of Dace, Roach and Chub, with occasional Barbel to specimen size, and migratory fish in season. Can all anglers fishing this stretch, please adhere to the country side code? Ensure all gates remain closed, leave no litter, no fires and be considerate of the wildlife.

For access enter post code LL13 9RY into your Sat Nav. This will take you to the parish church at Isycoed. Go past the church on your left-hand side until you pass Lower Hall Farm again on your left. Just past the farm you will come to a T Junction, turn left and you will immediately see a gate on your right leading into the fields. The key code for the gate is 6070, pass through the first gate, directly through the 2nd gate and follow the path until you reach the 3rd gate. Parking is on the right-hand side, just before the 3rd gate. DO NOT DRIVE PAST THE 3RD GATE. Access to the river is by walking across the field through the 3rd gate, approximately a 5-minute walk.

Upper and Lower Limits for fishing will be clearly sign posted.

As this is a new venue, we would appreciate any feedback from visiting members, especially photos and information regarding catches.

  1. New water at Ridley Wood is past Lower Farm on left, go through first gate and combination lock is on second gate.
    The track is only suitable for four-wheeled drive vehicles at present, being badly rutted by tractors over the winter period. ( “Lower Hall Farm” is about 3/4 of a mile away)
