Lake History



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


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

1951 Peat extraction and the creation of a small dam flooded the wetland to create 12.5 acre lake which was used for supplying drinking water to local farms and villages.

1971 - 1985 Llyn Gweryd operated as club trout fishery.    

1989 The lake was restocked with Coarse fish and Carp to 20lbs and for the past 30yrs the fish have been breeding and maturing prolifically giving us a stock of over 1500 carp.

The Dam bay 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 home to a secret peat island which rises in June before submurging again in late November. estimated size to be 30m x 25m kidney shaped which holds many good fish.

The lakes is 395m long x 200m at its widest holding over 70,000 cubic metres of water.

February 2016 as new owners we decided to give the fish a well earned break and to start the over due renovation works.
