Gweryd (12½ acres: 5 Ha), a natural spring fed lake, provides excellent carp fishing. It is now regarded as one of the leading Carp waters in Wales and is regularly reported in the angling press. Rob Hughes recently featured Llyn Gweryd on the Carp Show on Sky (see photo right). It has also provided a finalist to the Angling Times Nash Masters competition each year.
Llyn Gweryd contains good size carp:
Mirror Carp to 27 lbs
Common Carp to 26lbs
Ghost Carp to 20 lbs
There is a very large head of Carp in the lake and at least 15 over 20lbs plus 50 high doubles, 200 low doubles and numerous singles. The average weight for a Carp caught is currently 13 lbs.
Llyn Gweryd has 18 all weather bivvy pegs plus a further 22 pegs. All are easily accessible from the three car parks. A number are suitable for disabled anglers.
Day, 24 hour and longer stay tickets are available. Carp fishing is restricted to a maximum of 20 pegs/ anglers at any one time on Llyn Gweryd, so it is important to book to avoid disappointment.
And then there is Lyn Louis a ¾ acre (0.4 Ha) lake containing Carp to 10lbs. It is ideal for those starting into Carp fishing.
All the back-up facilities you need are on site. Tackle, bait and information are available from the shop. An excellent choice of food, from take away snacks to full meals is available from the café. There are toilet facilities on both banks of Llyn Gweryd. Showers and drying facilities are located in the shop complex.
Winter overnight Carp matches are run between November and March. Coaching sessions are also run throughout the year, which provide the opportunity to learn new techniques or for beginners to learn the basics. See the news page for details.
