Fishing

One of Wales’ finest trout fisheries and a favourite spot for enthusiasts or beginners who just want to “have a go”.

Llys y Frân reservoir is set in a country park with ancient oak woods and distant views of the Preseli Mountains. The oaks are the source of many terrestrial insects and also caterpillars that can be imitated by fly fishermen. Dark lures are the early season choice whilst black, claret and green buzzers are useful patterns when the fish are rising to Chironomids. Worm fishing is permitted in certain areas. An unique boathouse accommodates over 30 boats and a restaurant and licenses bar caters for the inner angler. A cage rearing programme provides a constant supply of prime rainbows of up to 5lb in weight.

All the tackle you need can be hired at Llys y Frân and tuition is available on site, but rod licences must be obtained from a Post Office beforehand.
