Many thanks to The Royal Hotel for facilitating this camera's location and capitally funding its installation. The River Dee has its source on the slopes of Dduallt above Llanuwchllyn in the mountains of Snowdonia in Merioneth, Gwynedd, Wales, and then passes through Bala Lake. The path of the river trends generally east-south-east as it descends off the Ordovician Denbigh Moors, over the man-made Horseshoe Falls and through Llangollen, generally skirting the outcropping Karstic limestone exposures north of Llangollen. East of Llangollen, Salmon are generally caught throughout its length from its tributaries of Bala Lake down to Cheshire plain as low-down as Farndon, according to the time of the year. The lowest beats in the Overton-on-dee area yield the greatest number Of spring fish. But it is the middle and upper river around Llangollen and corwen that produce most of the summer grilles and autumn fish.
