Bala and District Angling Association: Bala Lake (Llyn Tegid) - Fishing in Wales

Bala and District Angling Association: Bala Lake (Llyn Tegid)

Bala and District Angling Association has mixed coarse and game fishing on Llyn Tegid (also known as Bala Lake). This is the largest natural lake in Wales at nearly 6 km long.

It has a diverse array of fish species. These include perch, roach, pike, brown trout, grayling, eels, minnows, loaches, ruffe and bullheads.

The pike and trout are known to grow to specimen sizes – pike to 30lb plus and ‘ferox’ trout to 15lb have been caught.

Llyn Tegid is one of only a few places in the country where still-water grayling can be caught.

The legendary gwyniad is unique to the lake. This is a deep water plankton feeder and seldom caught on rod and line.

A BDAA season  permit allows you to fish the lake. A Bala Angling DAY ticket gives the angler access to all club waters but NOT LLYN TEGID. The angler wishing to fish LLyn Tegid on a day ticket MUST buy a ticket from the warden or ticket machine near the warden’s office.
