Lake History



A Jewel in the Crown @ 1057ft nestled within the Clwydian Mountain range, said to be the highest Carp Fishery in UK


Located in an area of outstanding national beauty, Llyn Gweryd (Reservoir) has no record of its origin other than a large area of wetland with a small peat island 1783.

1951 Peat extraction created a small dam and flooded the wetland to create a 12 acre lake used for supplying water to villages fish rearing pools.

1971 - 1985 Llyn Gweryd operated as club trout fishery. 

1986 The lake was restocked with leney Carp to 20lbs and for the past 33yrs the fish have been breeding and maturing giving us a stock todate of over 1500+ Carp.

The Lake averages 6ft snag free on a bed of firm shingle. The north western end is 6ft - 10ft on a soft bed of peat and blood worm.

The lake has a secret peat island which rises in June before submurging again in late November. 30m x 25m many suncken holes and features. 

Length 395m x 200m at its widest point, Water volume 65,000 cubic metres of water.
