The winner was Rob Evans with the heaviest 6 fish bag who won fly rod donated by Fishtec. Second was Viv Davies. Third was our chairman Tony Crossman.

Fishing Reports

6th May

Time to put those thermals away! We live in hope. Some anglers have had good early morning buzzer fishing, with warmer, settled conditions bringing the large brown buzzers which hatch here in April on to hatch. Try a mix of glues and diawls fished static on a full greased floater. Tight lines.

29th April

Wind has spoilt several days, but fish are being regularly caught on buzzers and a more imatative approach during warmer and calmer afternoons. The red head diawl will catch on most lakes, and definitely on our res, and can be used with all densities of line. Tight lines.

22nd April

The warm weather and good water clarity has brought the fish on to the feed. During the week a fantastic 12 lb brown trout was caught on a black pennell, what a fish. (photo in gallery). The Dr. Rod comp was a great success, with fish caught on all methods and from all zones. The winner of the Dr. Rod Cup was Rob Evans who managed to return several fish as well as his 6 fish bag. Good Angling. The Les Jones Cup was won by Rowland Owens with the largest fish of 3lb 8oz. A total of 48 fish were weighed in,with a catch average for the day of 3.8 fish, with many taking the opportunity to C/R before their limit,which was excellent fishing. Thanks for those who supported and attended an entertaining and longstanding competition.

10th April

Mixed weather conditions have hampered the fishing, but with a large stocking for the Dr Rod comp and hopefully settled weather, fishing should improve. Fish seem to like the stone structure of the dam, and is well worth a go.

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.

19th March

The weather has brought thr fishing to grinding halt, with coloured water and 30+ winds, not being conducive for casting a fly. Good news is that there have been three quality stockings so far from both Exmoor and Llyn-y-fan. A few hard souls have fished and have taken the odd fish, but hopefully the best is to come. Ironically, the dam end has produced fish, so much for hotspots!

Opening Day 2018

Well the weather put a dampner on the proceedings, hopefully with a stocking this week and settled weather, fishing should pick up. Some managed to catch the odd one on white dancers and a sink tip. The lake is bursting with fish! Tight lines.

December 2017/January 2018

After the winter stocking, a few hardy souls had some good sport over the winter period. Di3/5 with tequila blobs / boobies doing the job, hot damsels also working. Plenty of fish left, so expect a good start to the new season. Tight lines.
