Lake History



A Jewel in the Crown @ 1043ft nestled within the Clwydian Mountain range said to be the highest Carp Fishery in Wales.


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 livestock and farm sawmill.

1970 -  Small fish rearing pools below Llyn Gweryd.

1971 - 1981 Llyn Gweryd operated as club trout fishery.
