The River Conwy (Afon Conwy) is a river in North Wales. From its source on the Migneint Moor, to its discharge in Conwy Bay it is over 27 miles long. It rises on the Migneint moor where a number of small streams flow into Llyn Conwy, then flows in a generally northern direction, being joined by the tributaries of the rivers Machno and Lledr before settling to a gentler pace below Betws-y-Coed, where it is a salmon and sea trout river and is also joined by the river Llugwy. On the upper reaches above Conwy Falls there are some wonderful places to fish for wild brown trout.
The river Llugwy, a major tributary of the Conwy, is a trout and salmon river. From Betws-y-coed the river continues to flow north through Llanrwst, Trefriw and Dolgarrog before reaching Conwy Bay at Conwy. The river discharges into Conwy Bay close to the town of Conwy with its world famous medieval Castle and town walls. Here at Conwy the river has been harvested for the famous Conwy mussels since Roman times, and indeed the pearls from the Conwy mussels were famed for their use in the English crown jewels.
