The River Marteg is a river in Radnorshire.

It is about ten miles long, flowing roughly south-west to join the Wye at Pont Marteg (grid reference SN952714) about three miles above Rhayader.[1]

Fishing is available, with appropriate permits, for brown trout, chub, dace, grayling and pike.[2] The river has a run of spawning Atlantic salmon in the autumn.[3]
