The River Dwyfor

Sea Trout Fishing on the River Dwyfor

The River Dwyfor (big holy river in Welsh) in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, rises in Cwm Dwyfor at the head of Cwm Pennant, gathering numerous streams which drain the surrounding mountains from Mynydd Graig Goch in the west to Moel Hebog in the east, before flowing southwest towards Dolbenmaen and out of the Snowdonia National Park. After a brief diversion west, it turns south, then southwest again, heading for the village of Llanystumdwy, beyond which it heads for the coast and Tremadog Bay. Its principal tributaries are the Afon Henwy which enters on its left bank above Dolbenmaen, and the Afon Dwyfach which joins it as a right-bank tributary to the west of Llanystumdwy.
