After the long months that Llyngwyn was closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic it was good to finally be open again and get fishing. Llyngwyn was stocked before the opening with some larger rainbows up to 5lb in weight. The average bag was 4 fish and some of the larger bags caught include Mr Wood from Sussex who had a great day with 11, Ken Holroyd caught 10, Roger lewis 11, Phil Price 10 and Mr Rowberry 8. Some good catches included Roger Lewis with a 6 1/2lb rainbow on a foam daddy, Ken Holroyd with a 6lb on a Damsel and a 5 1/2lb on a Klinkhammer.
Rhayader & Elan Valley Angling Association would like to thank everyone for their patience over the months that we were all in lockdown and it’s great to see everyone back fishing. Stay safe.
For any anglers wishing to access the river Wye via the Caravan site, this is the route you must take whilst inside the grounds of the camping and caravan club site.
The committee have decided that Llyngwyn and the rivers will be open from this Saturday 25th July. Tickets will be available from R. M. Powells Newsagents and Hafod Hardware. The toilet and shed will remain closed and boats will be out of use for the time being.
Anglers visiting these venues will need to make themselves aware of the current government rules and guidance relating to COVID 19 and social distancing. Anglers are also expected to maintain hygiene particularly regarding gates and styles etc.
Please complete catch returns on the back of tickets or piece of paper and post under shed door.
As from Monday 6th July, the Elan Valley and Claerwen reservoirs will be open for fly fishing only, operating on a 'Day Permit Only' basis.
Llyngwyn and the Rivers will remain closed until further notice.
We have had to make the tough decision to cancel our annual presentation and social evening. We feel it's in people's best interest to do it as soon as possible rather than leaving it late and the decision possibly being taken out of our hands.
Our Annual Social Evening and Presentation is on Saturday March 21st, 2020 and will be held at the The Elan Hotel .
Tickets are £10 and that includes an open buffet.
Please get in touch if you would like a ticket. It's a great evening and the more the merrier!
