Llyn Brenig - Fishing in Wales

Llyn Brenig

Situated in North Wales, Llyn Brenig Reservoir is recognised as one of the best top-of-the water trout fisheries in the UK.

With 14m / 23km of shoreline, it is one of the best places to go fishing in Conwy (possibly North Wales!) and is chosen for many international matches.

Stocked with rainbow trout, our fish are reared on site in the cold Llyn Brenig waters, enabling them to become fully acclimatised and earn their reputation as fierce fighters.

Fishing at Llyn Brenig Reservoir is only by fly, which is best done from a boat, however, you can also fly fish from the bank.  It is recommended to book boat hire in advance.

If you are new to fly fishing, you can also book a fly fishing taster session at the Visitor Centre on  01490 389227.  The fly fishing taster sessions make a great gift or fun group activity for those visiting Conwy.

To accompany great fishing, we also have a fantastic visitor centre with activity hub, café, gift shop, osprey exhibition and specialist fishing shop – with everything you need to get out on the water.

Pike Fishing

Did you know that pike as large as 30lbs have been caught at the lake?

From 1st November each year, Llyn Brenig offers some amazing Pike Fishing from boat or pegs.

Dead sea bait and fishing lures over 6 inches are allowable over winter, with the option of overnight fishing for the hardy angler.
