Welcome To Llyn Coron Fly Fishery, Anglesey
Unusual in its tranquility, the lake is easily accessible, with waterside parking. A day spent wandering its shores and pitting your wits against its wily brown and sea trout is a memorable experience for even the most seasoned fly fisherman.
We are now closed until 1st March 2018. Please contact us with any membership enquiries.

Important Notice for Visitors
Please note: Because Llyn Coron is a large natural lake, in common with other fisheries of this type the banks are allowed to grow naturally, providing cover and habitat for wildlife. This means that during the summer months and into autumn, access to the water can be quite difficult around most shores of the lake. We would like to make anglers aware that reaching fishing spots may require a long walk from the car park and pushing through dense vegetation to get to the water. In addition, wading is essential in most parts in order to obtain casting clearance.
We are a small club and we do not run the fishery along the same lines as commercial ventures. Our low day ticket prices reflect the lack of facilities at the lake and we are unable to guarantee that easy access to the banks will be available – just as anglers would find if they visited other wild fisheries. However, unlike other wild fisheries, we do not bar anglers from bringing water craft or float-tubes if they wish.
For bank anglers the easiest fishing will be found on the north-eastern shoreline opposite the boat dock (see our map). Walk from the car park up the lane about 250 metres until you reach a left turn into a farm track. Opposite this on the right hand side of the lane is a footpath towards the lake. It may be very overgrown in summer, but can be walked through to the north bank of the lake. From there you can fish all the way round past Afon Ffraw (there is a footbridge) down the north east bank (where some of the best fishing is found) to where Afon Gwna enters the lake.
We strongly recommend that, prior to purchasing tickets, anglers check the lake for feasibility of access, based on their physical capabilities and also bear in mind that fishing success here can be much more challenging than a standard commercial put-and-take fishery!
The 2017 season runs through to 30th November
Late evening in May: excellent buzzer hatches and some sedges appearing too. These fish (plus 7 others returned) were landed in just a couple of hours on a leader combination of size 14 claret buzzer and cinnamon sedge.
Picture this at Llyn Coron: armed with your day or season ticket and you arrive at the lake to set up for your fishing. As you’re tackling up a family arrives nearby and proceed to jump into the water!read more
The catch returns to date this season have been on a par with last year. Also there have been fewer fishing sessions logged, making the average return higher.read more

With a spectacular backdrop of Snowdonia and a hint of the nearby sea-shore on the breeze, the 80 acre natural stillwater fishery of Llyn Coron is a unique lowland location.
PLEASE NOTE: We are sorry, but we do not have boats available for hire to day ticket visitors. Those found at the fishery are owned by season members for private use.
Great little lake, best setting ever, Snowdon in the distance watching over us.
Started in the evening and at about 8.30 the expected sedge hatch came, big fat flies with long whiskers. The trout went wild for a dry sedge muddler fished from the weed into the ripple. Good sized fish.
Easy wading and a beautiful fishery. Saw two other people in boats otherwise all to myself. Took one for breakfast!James Graham
I had 17 in total, all 10″ plus and had four double hook ups. Its a cracking venue and the trout really came on hard for about an hour when the main hatches came off (around 1 – 2pm).Ant
…fished on Saturday just gone and although it was very windy I managed to have some great sport tempting some good fish to take my muddlers in the waves.Chris Girling
