Enjoy Pembrokeshire

Sea Fishing

The fishing in Pembrokeshire is some of the best to be had anywhere in Britain and as the county is surrounded on three sides by the sea, fish are never far away. Add this to the rivers, ponds, lakes and reservoirs and it would take years to fish all of the spots here.

The coast offers excellent fishing from rocks or beaches offering Bass, Mackerel, Wrasse, and Flatfish to name but a few. Some of the popular marks are found on or near golden sands dotted around the county while other areas still provide the tranquility of fishing in near isolation, where you can easily find you have a whole stretch of coast to yourself.

If you are heading out to sea boat fishing then please follow the Marine Code. Marine Code members offering expert local knowledge and boat charters are also dotted around the county. Download the Fishing in the National Park guide below for more details. Cliff angling can be dangerous. Take care and follow the guidelines from the RNLI. Please try and avoid disturbing wildlife and don't forget to record any unusual sightings you may see!

  • Please take a look at the important links below. Angling is one of the recreational activities in the National Park that generates complaints. This is usually because of the litter left behind on cliff ledges and beaches. Please take all of your litter home and leave the fishing mark cleaner than you found it.
  • The Pembrokeshire Federation of Angling Coaches and Neptune's Army of Rubbish Cleaners (NARC) have teamed up to produce some leaflets helping you avoid tackle loss when fishing here. Click on the relevant link to download the Stackpole leaflet and the Martin's Haven leaflet.
