Darran Park Lake

Sensible policies pursued have turned this prolific lake into one of the primary Welsh venues for specimen fish.

Situated within a municipal park, fishing is only permitted during opening hours.

Summer & Autumn are the favoured seasons for heavy hauls of mixed species.

The lake is oval & fringed by a low wall supporting a wide, flat & hard path take an unhooking mat please with plenty of seats ideal for anglers confined to a wheelchair. An adequate landing net is essential just in case.

2 very deep mining lift shafts overflowed to create 4 acres of cold spring water rarely less than 4ft deep around the edge & plunging rapidly to 20 to 30ft.

Carp (into curried boilies at present) have been observed to an estimated 40.lbs+ while bream & tench reach about 7 to 8.lb with perch 5.lb. These leading characters are supported by roach & rudd to 1.5.lb, big eels a few chub & some rather large pike.
