The Boat Inn is famous for its picturesque location at Erbistock. <br><br> The River Dee, which is about 70 miles long, rises in the hills above Llanuwchllyn in Merioneth (Gwynedd) before it passes through Bala Lake. It then flows north west via Corwen, Llangollen, Erbistock and Chester, and discharges to the sea into an estuary between Wales and the Wirral in England. <br><br> The river has been famed as a mixed fishery with salmon and trout fishing, mostly in the upper waters and a good coarse fishery in the lower reaches. 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 Erbistock - Overton-on-dee area yield the greatest number of spring fish. <br><br> There have been disputes on the River Dee for several years between the rights of canoeists and anglers.
