Fishery Information

There are three coarse lakes and two trout lakes at Eisteddfa Fishery, all of which have the same sense of tranquility and incredible scenery, but each offers something a little bit different depending on your choice.

The fishery is located between Snowdonia and the northern arc of Cardigan Bay. Three coarse lakes, each situated in a different but equally beautiful landscape, ensure a great deal of variety. They are:

Pleasure Lake, the most popular with dedicated coarse anglers, is the largest of the three coarse lakes. It has an island, reeds, and lily beds, as well as a variety of fish, including mirror and common carp, green and gold tench, bream, rudd, roach, and perch. The official carp record at this location is 18 lbs.

Carp Lake is primarily a destination for serious carp angler. The fish in this lake can weigh up to 25 pounds. The beautiful lake has the same features and same fish variety fish as those found in the pleasure lake. There are six evenly placed pegs, with the majority of them accommodating double bivvies. Carp lake anglers can fish 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Away from the other lakes, Family Lake is extremely popular with young families because of its tranquil setting. It features ten evenly spaced pegs, and fishing is daily from 8 a.m. to sunset.

The two trout fishing lakes are:

Trout Lake, which has a consistent stock of pan-sized rainbow trout (1-1 ½ lb) provides excellent fishing opportunities for both expert and novice anglers.

The Fly Lake, which is slightly more than 2 acres, is exclusively for fly-fishing. Children under the age of 16 can only fish in this lake if their parents accompany them.
