Fishing Harbour Beach in Abersoch

Pretty, east facing shallow clean sandy beach, with the river Soch running on the right hand side of the beach via Abersoch harbour

The Spring tides fish better than neaps, and are best fished 2 hours either side of high water either from the beach or from the small harbour wall. If fishing from the wall please be mindfull of the bouys running into the entrance of the harbour(and the drop from the wall down to the water)

Abersoch Harbour Beach


From Pwllheli take the a499 sign posted Abersoch, just prior to reaching Abersoch the harbour beach is on your left hand side. Access via a narrow track next to boat parking opposite Abersoch land and sea garage. (there is very little parking)

Bass and mullet are the main spring/summers species with the addition of some flounder, plaice and dog fish on very big spring tides.
Winter see’s an increase of good flounder and dogfish plus dabs and whiting – More Info


Sandeel is the main bait for most species in summer, black lug or rag can also work well – More Info


A 2 hook flapper rig with a plain 4oz bomb will cover 90% of your needs on this venue.
Plug and spinner work well here for the bass (early morning or late evening) – More Info
