Not the biggest reservoir, but a great little spot for both bank and boat fishing. Nice tackle shop on site, with manager Ifor advising popular patterns and techniques. Rainbow trout range from 1.5lb (although average size, I guess, is 2lb - 3lb) with 4lb+ being regularly caught. A good place to learn (with casting tuition available) or just enjoy the sport. Worth calling Ifor ahead of your visit to book a boat (if required!) and to check how it's fishing.
