Opening week 2019

The wild weather has affected the water clarity making fishing a pot luck affair. Yet some quality fish to 5 1/2lbs being caught with several 3lb to 4lbs in many bags. Di5/7s and boobies accounting for most, though our chairman did catch on super glues. With the extra stocking and warmer conditions fishing should explode. Tight lines.

Gales wind and no clarity! Llyn y fan stock gone in.

18th March 2019

At long last, improved clarity has triggered the fish on to feed. Started off with big lures to attract the fish , but now, glues fished under the bung seems to be the method. Several four fish bags over 10lb plus being caught with many returned.🐟🐟🐟

3rd April

Bad weather has effected the fishing again, that said, another stock has gone in, and hopefully with better forecast due, the fishing should pick up. Tactic for coloured water, something black and creating a disturbance fished close in. Try by the big stony/concrete thing by the tower.😉

26th March

At last , some settled weather and with clarity returning, the fishing has switched on. Some cracking fish to 4lbs. plus some overwintered fin perfect rainbows have been caught. Boobies and hi -dis work, but goldheads and large nymphs on floaters work just as well. One tip we highly recommended is that you fish your flies right in to the side. Too many fish seem to follow the flies all the way in. No need to wade, especially if your first to fish a particular spot. Tight lines.
