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.

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.

Gweryd Lakes now has two great trout pools (0.3/ ¾ acres each).

Llyn Louis – This is a bait and fly pool kept fully stocked with Rainbow and Blue trout. This pool is fun for all the family. It also has easily accessible disabled pegs. It is great for those learning to fly fish or those who just wish to hook a fish for supper. View map of Llyn Louis.
