Tariff and Fishing Information
Fishing on Lake Vyrnwy is controlled by Lake Vyrnwy Hotel, any bookings may be made by contacting the hotel reception on 01691 870692. For the full fishing tariff please click here.
A fishing day runs from 8am until one hour before sunset. There are two boat stations; the boathouse pool situated at the bottom of the hotel drive and whitegates situated two thirds along the North side of the lake.
Batteries and engines are provided and are to be collected from the hotel reception at the start of the day - rods are expected to return them to the hotel at the end of their days fishing.
The boats are provided with thole pin oars and the wearing of life jackets are mandatory. Rods are welcome to bring their own, however preservers are available for hire locally.
Situated as it is 1000ft up in the Berwyn Mountains, North Wales, weather can change quite quickly. It is often a lot colder on the water than on land. Appropriate clothing is a must, as is sun cream for those sparkling summer days. Wind is also a feature of Vyrnwy fishing, whilst seldom a day goes by when there isn’t a ripple to be found somewhere on the lake and other times a drogue anchor is a necessity and should form part of any Vyrnwy fishermans basic kit list.
Ghillies are available and reception will be delighted to pass on any contact details. Instruction may also be arranged from an introduction to fly fishing for complete beginner’s right the way through to coaching and support at all levels.
