The conversion of Llyn Alarch from a fly fishing only trout fishery to a coarse fishery is FINISHED. To see pictures of the development, click here.
Old stages have been removed and new stages have been installed.
A lot of work has been done. Work parties (consisting of committee and club members) have chopped and chipped trees, where the chips will be used around the lake. Groundworks have taken place including levelling of areas around the lake and digging out sections of the lake around the edges to increase the depth/quality of the water.
The willows at the top end of the lake were felled to permit stages to be installed there.
Cormorant refuges have been installed, something that is new to small Stillwater fisheries in Wales. These are sheep netting cages lowered into the lake that the fish can enter and leave freely but cormorants canít. All the work has been overseen and approved by Richard Sheppard of the EA.
The lake has been stocked, the species you will be able to fish for are:
The fishery will be open 22nd February 2014. Fly fishing, as well as your usual coarse fishing tactics will be permitted.
