    Early season something black and green with a long leader on a floater or on an intermediate. You won't need a fast sinker unless you're on the boats because the lakes are not very deep.

    The fly life is better on the top pond than the so any black buzzers early season getting lighter as the season goes on. Diawl bach with red rib is always good as is the damsel. Late summer the sedge life is prolific especially on the bottom pond. The fab and blob are also useful at times.

    Some very good advice from cymroglan.
    Personally I like to use a slime line intermediate and a black tadpole, Montana or damsel on the point with a blob or apps bloodworm as my single dropper. Last year this simple set up accounted for four double hook ups and I managed to land 3 of the double hook ups (7 fish landed out of a possible 8).
    Fishing a gold head nymph on a sink tip line is also worthwhile. Every day is different but early season tactics of black and green and deep and slow is a good place to start.
    I will post regular reports on this site if forum members want this.
    Tight lines,
    Ade

    Hi Ade many thanks for your comments. Your fishing updates will be very much appreciated by all I'm sure. Can I please suggest that it's done on a separate thread as this one as a review is really difficult to navigate and view on any device other than a pc or laptop. Cheers.

    Dear forum members,

    If you fish Ynysyfro could you please share your experiences and successful tactics in this thread to help others. For your information there has been a large number of trout stocked ready for the beginning of the season and regular stockings will happen throughout the season with quality fish being supplied from Torre and Exmoor fish farms.

    Tight lines,
    Ade

    First report of the 2014 season.
    The fishery opened at 7am today (March 1st). The good turnout of members were greeted to a lovely mild, sunny and dry day. I managed to catch my 8 fish reservoir limit by 8.30am (this included netting my first double hook up of the season) then I went to the top reservoir to continue fishing. The first 1 and a half hours I fished I did not get a touch on the top reservoir and not many people were catching. However, from 10am to 11am I caught a further 4 fish as I left more people were catching on the top reservoir and it appears either the increase in temperature or the presence of a good ripple had stimulated the trout on the top reservoir. Prospects good for the rest of the week with visitor tickets being available from Monday the 3rd of March.
    Successful tactics for me was an intermediate line using, cats whiskers, black tadpole or a damsel on the point with an orange blob as the single dropper.

    Tight Lines,

    Ade

    I fished ynysyfro on the opening day also. I started on the top pond but as Ade said it was tough at the start so I moved to the bottom pond where I caught six in total on a weighted damsel and a montana using a ghost tip line. The angler next to me was catching fish on a black and peacock spider so fishing traditional flies also works well on this reservoir.

    Another very successful morning at ynysyfro with 7 fish caught including a double hook up which Ade helped me land. 6 were caught on a hot head damsel and 1 on an orange blob.

    Fished a very short session today from 8am to 9.30am (migraine) and caught 7 rainbows all taken using an intermediate line, orange blob on a single dropper and a mini-cats whisker on the point. It was a pleasure helping net Martyn's first ever double hook up and it was pleasing to see most angler's catching even if the weather was a tad wet and blustery.

    At the moment the bottom reservoir is outfishing the top with the hot spots on the bottom being the 'inlet bay' , the 'new house' point and anywhere from the boats around past the 'bush' (this will make sense if you visit the reservoir).

    Also, I would like to say how nice it was to see a fellow forum member at the reservoirs on Saturday and welcome Wynne to Ynysyfro.

    Tight lines,

    Ade

    Diolch Ade - looks as though the Westies are finding the delights of Ynysyfro.
    Unfortunately was unable to make it today, but with the weather, it might have been no bad thing
    Will be there soon
