Don't see any reason not to use a tube there.

I don't see why not either. I've seen just about every kind of craft on there, as long as it's not powered.

I would mention one thing though, watch out for the yatch races or those practising for races, especially the catamarans that go very fast with perhaps not the best visability. Just a thought to keep out of their way, or be very visible on this big lake.

Sounds a bit busy for a tube, Lake Hill fishery down the road allows tubes as I recall?

Wouldn't fancy dangling my feet in there.There's some huge pike in Bala..Seen them up to 29lb.Some good brownies though.don't think you'll have a problem but may have to pay a small fee.The wardens at Bala are great blokes and will point you in the right direction.Just avoid at bank holidays,it's chaos.Have fun

If I was you John I would try Brenig first. You can fish the Arm and I think they now let you into Sports Club bay. Lot better than Bala.

I was thinking of the Pike at Bala rather than the trout.

There are some rather large perch and pike in Brenig. It's also a bit safer than Bala to tube on.
