FLY FISHING ONLY: CATCH & RELEASE ONLY ON BARBLESS HOOKS
The season runs from 21st March until 17th October. Fishing is from dawn to dusk. Day ticket holders may leave and return as many times as they wish during the daylight hours of the given date.
Anglers must be in possession of the appropriate rod licence.
Boats are for members and guests only. Float tubes, kayaks etc are allowed at THE USER’S OWN RISK.
We are just a small club, and the water is not run like a commercial stocked fishery. The location is a wild lake, with wild fish, and anglers should approach it accordingly.
The lake is situated in an SSSI so the banks are not maintained for access to the water, but are allowed to grow on in order to encourage wildlife. This means that it can be a challenge to reach the water through the bank-side vegetation. Please bear this in mind particularly if you have any mobility issues. Also wading is often necessary to cover fish as the water is shallow close to the banks.
The easiest access and fishing is on the North and East banks. They are accessed along the lane from the car park for about 300m until you come to a farm track on the left. A few metres past this lane there is public footpath access which leads you towards the lake.
The fishing along this bank, over the Afon Ffraw bridge and down the East shore and round past Cormorant Rock to Gwna Bay has easier access. The other shore is very difficult to access when summer growth is in full swing.
