Our only Trout Stillwater, the Association leases this lake.  It is stocked with Rainbow Trout and has a resident stock of Brown Trout (Some quite large). The lake is approximately 2 acres and is spring fed, with crystal clear water. The trout are in great condition and fight well in the clear water. It really is set in a tranquil location, no road noise, a few sheep, birds tweeting and the call "I'm in again!" from your fishing partner. It can be fished every day of the year except Christmas Day. The owner lives nearby keeping a close eye on the lake and any potential predators!

How to find it:

From Denbigh on the Ruthin Road, turn left by the sports centre on to the Ystrad road, sign posted Saron/Prion.  From this point it is exactly 2.7 miles to the turn off following the main road for Prion.  The turn is a left fork by 3 very small cottages;  Ty Pen Bryn appears to be one of them.  There is a small sign for Capel Prion on a Give Way sign, follow the road past 3 houses, immediately after the third house(Bronallt) there is a left junction signposted as a cul de sac/bridleway.  Take this left turn.  Park on the neatly mown grass verge, you may find it easier to reverse up to this point from the junction  Do not drive past the house!  From the end of the grass verge walk past 2 houses until you reach a green gate sign posted  ‘Private’. Go through the gate and the water is 100yds. down the field on the right.
