Llyn Coron, Aberffraw, Anglesey

The enchanting natural still water lake at Llyn Coron Fishery is more run by a small syndicate and is not like your average commercial fishery. It is a challenge for the experienced fisherman so don’t take any beginners here. Its charm lies in that it appears more as a wild lake with Snowdonia as a backdrop. It is close to the beautiful seaside village of Aberffraw.

Due to it’s wild and natural nature, accessing the lake can be challenging in peak summer due to the growth of natural vegetation. As such it is best to head to the North and East banks of the lake that remain more easily accessible all year round. You can reach the North bank by walking along the lane from the Anglers’ Car Park for about 300 yards until you come to a farm track on the left. Opposite this lane, there is a public footpath access through the lane boundary on the right which leads you towards the lake. Some parts to the lake require that you wade into the water to go beyond the shallows whilst on the North and East banks this becomes less required as the fish feed off the ample insect life.

The Flyfishing lake is over 2 acres in size and provides excellent quality rainbow as well and brown and blue trout. It has 17 pegs. Under 16’s need to be accompanied by an adult.

The easiest way to find the lake is coming up from Aberffraw where the main road over Afon Ffraw has a turn off up a lane near the bridge. The lane follows the river up from the village. Follow this lane for about 1.5 miles and you’ll arrive at the fisherman’s car park where the returns book is.
The best fishing from the bank requires you to walk a little from the car park. Carry on up the lane in the same direction you approached the car park, on foot about 250 metres. You come to a left turn for a farm track. Opposite this on the right hand side of the lane is a footpath towards the lake. It may appear slightly overgrown at this time of year, but it’s easy enough to walk through to the north bank of the lake. I walked round there yesterday to check it’s all accessible. From there you can fish all the way round past where Afon Ffraw enters Llyn Coron (there’s a footbridge) right down the north east bank (where some of the best fishing is) to where Afon Gwna enters the lake.
