Brenig and Alwen
Available to our members
from January 2019
Our committee negotiated a new opportunity for our full adult /young adult members to fish Llyn Brenig and Llyn Alwen commencing January 2019.
This is for 2 bank rods per day on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 1st January until 31st December.
The arrangement continues during 2020.
Members must book in advance with Foxons and then report to the Brenig shop to show their membership card before fishing.
Do not turn up at Brenig (not having booked) unless you are intending to buy a day ticket from them.
All Brenig rules must be followed including leaving a catch return on the day of fishing. Our usual booking conditions apply as published in our handbook, only one Brenig booking at any one time. Our committee will monitor the bookings to ensure fair access for members.
This a significant investment and members should take every opportunity to make use of this facility, saving as much as £23 per day with our arrangements.
If you'd like to fish from a boat, two RASAAA members could split the cost of boat hire for a really cheap day on the lake.
4,000 rainbow trout were stocked during the first week of March. Additional stocking of 1,000 fish also take place at various times during the season.
Llyn Brenig Lake is now recognised as one of the best top-
of-the-water fisheries in the UK. With its 23km of shoreline, it's one of the best places to go fishing in Conwy. Anglers travel from far and wide to our north Wales location to experience the vast body of water that offers so much to the discerning fly fisher. It’s a highly respected venue for competitive angling and has hosted World, Commonwealth and International matches.
The reservoir offers bank and boat fishing and really tests the angler’s ability as the boat drifts in the breeze.
Locations like the Dam wall, Hafod LomWoods, Nantglyn
and the Brenig Arm may call for different techniques, and if there are decent hatches of flies these will add to the excitement.
The lake is stocked with rainbow trout, and the fishing is by fly only. Because the fish are reared on site, in the cold Brenig water, they are fully acclimatised and have a deserved reputation for being fierce fighters.
Fishermen are exempt from the parking charge. The lake is best fished by boat and booking is recommended to avoid disappointment.
There is also fishing for trout in the nearby Alwen Reservoir. At Alwen, fishing is allowed by spinning, natural fly and single natural worm except north of the bridge, where it is fly only. Alwen also holds pike and perch.
