Cambrian Angling Association: Llyn Morwynion

Llyn Morwynion is situated approximately 1,200ft above sea level, but easily reached via a 15 minute walk from the car park above the spectacular “Rheadr Cynfal” (Cynfal Waterfalls).

The lake has a good head of natural, free rising brown trout, and is stocked twice annually with rainbows to supplement the native stock. The fish are quick risers and weigh between 1/2 and 3/4 lb on average.

Early season, (i.e. April and May) dark flies tend to produce most fish, Black Pennel, Black & Peacock Spider, Viva and Bibio being particular favourites. June, July and August are evening and night fishing months, when any sedge imitation will “winkle out” the better trout. Lately, the “Muddler” style of fly, in dark, sombre colours have worked very well.

The local “Rhwyfwr” flies are also used to to imitate the sedge family, many of these patterns are a hundred years old, but are still used successfully. Good advice, and these local flies can be found in the town’s tackle shops.

There is safe wading in most areas, but float tubing is permitted (at your own risk of course). Spinning and bait fishing is also allowed, a “walk and cast” session should see you around the lake in about an hour.
