I aim to update the site as often as possible with the river condition. This is not always possible due to work and other commitments. Check the blog as well for news.
The Nevern is a true spate river and comes up and down very quickly after rain. Good overnight rain (1″ and over) will see the river in flood during the morning, fish-able with worm or spinner by lunchtime, with a fly in the afternoon and then clear enough by dusk for night fishing with the fly. Leave it too late and you will have missed all of the fun!
There is no Environment Agency monitoring station on the Nevern, but the river Taf rises in the same hills and gives a fairly good indication as to the level of the Nevern. The Taf monitoring station can be found at:-

The start of the season was very poor. The cold spring ruined the start of the season and from the middle of May until the end of July, there was no rain to speak of. The fishing was very poor with only the odd sewin taken on worm and fly at night. Now the rain has cleared the river out and got the fish running, things are looking up!
When to fish- guide
The river is rising during rain but still clear – This moment won’t last long but fish will move as the river rises and become good takers as they enter new pools. As soon as the water gets too dirty, the fish will stop running and the moment is over! Time to head to the Pub.
The river is in full flood (dirty with branches and leaves coming down) – have the day off or go sea fishing for Bass!
The river is clearing off after a flood – Get out and fish now. As the river clears, the fish start to move and become good takers when they arrive in new pools. This won’t last very long, sometimes only a few hours.
The river is clear – Night fishing is good if its mild (over 10c). Dawn is also good for Salmon and Sewin. You might be lucky and pick up a fish in faster water in the middle of the day.
Teifi – The river comes up more slowly and takes a day longer to drop. This gives a good chance of fishing both rivers at their peak if you time your visits correctly!
