  • Description

    The Lake is generously stocked for anglers with bank and boat fishing available for rainbow and brown trout. The Lake allows for a variety of approaches to Trout Fishing ranging from easy access worm fishing along the East Bank or more challenging fly fishing where anglers can stalk trout using a variety of lures, nymphs and dry fly.

    In addition to rainbow trout and a small head of wild brown trout the reservoir is home to large numbers of coarse fish which include bream, roach, dace, eels and pike. The reservoir is well known for its large pike and Llandegfedd still holds the UK Pike record of 46lb 13oz!

    Please note children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
