Coarse Fishing on Llyn Gweryd

This beautiful spring fed natural lake with pegs suitable for pole and all types of rod fishing (waggler, feeder etc) contains a very large head of excellent silver fish. In 2011 feature fish were our magnificent perch with a 5lb, a 4.5lb and several 3lb plus fish being caught. Tench can be caught as early as March and average 3 to 4lb. Big bream are regularly caught and maybe caught through the winter in milder spells.

  • Bream to 10lbs
  • Tench to 10lbs
  • Perch to 5lbs
  • Crucian carp to 2lbs
  • Roach over 2lbs
  • Plus Rudd and abundance of Skimmers

Winter catches of 30lbs and summer ones of 80lbs are a regular feature. Llyn Gweryd has a total of 40 well spaced pegs suitable for specimen or pleasure fishing. All are easily accessible from the three car parks. A number are suitable for disabled anglers. View map of Llyn Gweryd.

Pleasure Fishing on Llyn Ewan

This attractive smaller lake is ideal for a day’s pleasure fishing. The 15 pegs are easily accessible from the car park. It contains a large head of silver fish smaller than on Gweryd, and the deeper water and islands provide different challenges.

  • Bream to 4 ½ lbs
  • Tench to 5lbs
  • Perch to 3 lbs
  • Roach to 1 ½ lbs
  • Plus Rudd and Skimmers

Nets of 20lbs are common. View map of Llyn Ewan.
