    I fished this water for the first time today.
    I started off by fishing the top pond, I started with an intermediate line and a few nymphs.
    I had a few takes on this set up but nothing to lock into. With a lot of fish rising, I decided to put on my floating line, and thought I would try a small olive dry fly, almost immediately I locked into a fish, and did so with another three.
    I must have lost at least another five and missed numerous other takes.
    The value of this water is exceptional at 12 all day catch and release (16) fish limit and you are permitted to take two fish away with you all included in the price.
    A Big thumbs up
    Cheers
    Garry

    13th April Fishing report


    Again, the top pond produced the better catch returns with limits and brown trout being regularly included. On the top pond, Day ticket visitor Luke Thomas certainly had his monies worth with limits on successive days whilst Keith Higgins and Dave Howells also had eight fish catches during the week. Bob Bradley landed seven rainbows, with a six fish catch netted by Bernard Stephens. Mark Southwood, Ken Bowring, Terry O Connor and Dave Reynolds all netted five fish, whilst Jeff Evans, Roy Jones, Graham Ingram Evans and Chris Daniels each landed three rainbows. A brace of top pond trout were recorded by Martin Lewis, Gareth Neale, Andrew Brann, Dave Hiscocks and Colin Jones In most cases, fish were caught on buzzer variations although a spell of warmer weather resulted in a few fish being landed on baby sun fly patterns, mainly from the Hedge bank.
    On the bottom pond, Ken Pascoe registered two eight fish limits from the bank and the boat, whilst Luke Thomas added a second limit to his top pond returns on both of his tickets. Roy Jones added another limit to his season's total catch whilst Ken Bowring landed four to match his earlier top pond return. Martin Rees landed three good bottom pond rainbows, as did Lee Ashcroft, Brian Christopher, and Phil Morgan. A brace of trout were netted by Shaun Cotterell, Phil Morgan and Mark Cox.
    All of these returns were demonstrated in the monthly catch returns for March which saw some four hundred and fifty fish caught on the top pond and over a thousand from the bottom pond. With over four hundred visits by permit holders and day tickets respectively, a very good early season rod average of three point five fish per rod was achieved In addition well over three dozen brown trout, all in excess of one lb have been caught and released back into the top pond. Well over sixty season permits have been sold and with membership totals nearing two hundred, the committee of NRFFA are looking forward to a very good season with both ponds having been well restocked.
    The annual Troutmasters fish off final is scheduled for Saturday April 21st on the top pond, between 8.30am and 12.00pm. The pond will be restricted to competitors only for that time, but outside of the morning the pond will be open to all. There are no restrictions on the bottom pond for permit holders or day tickets alike.

    Please see latest report below

    6th October

    NRFFA’s stocking policy has resulted in a huge improvement in fishing with some excellent catches reported over the last week. At present the water level on the bottom reservoir has been dropped by about 6 feet and NRFFA has decided to concentrate its stocking on the top reservoir where anglers are enjoying some hectic sport.
    Roger Jones caught his 8 fish limit using a floating line, 15 foot leader and a mixture of cat’s whiskers, orange blob and black tadpole. Gordon Stewart has made several visits to the reservoir catching 2, 7 and 8 fish with all the fish coming to buzzers or a black wooley ****** fished on an intermediate line.
    Several other anglers also took 8 fish limit catches with the fish coming to intermediate lines and various lures. Lee Ashcroft, Stephen Snape and Lee Ashcroft caught 7 fish each, Paul Jennings and John Eynon 6; Paul Elsworthy, Keith Higgins and Chris Daniels 5 each and Ivor Thomas caught 4. Day ticket visitor Tom Collier had a good day and caught 4 fish while his companion Rod Collier caught 2 as did another day ticket angler Mike Bryant who again caught 2. Ken Bowring visited the reservoirs 4 times and took 2 fish each time. Other anglers who caught 2 fish are Phil Harper, Mark Bryant, Bryn Burgess, Richard Young, Roy Jones, Colin Poole, Mark Waters, Bernard Stephens, Martyn Rees, Ivor Thomas and Gareth Neale. Anglers who caught 1 fish each are; Alan Vaisey, John McIndo, Phil Harper and Brian Wareham.
    With the fish in perfect condition anglers have experienced some epic battles with fish regularly taking the line down to the backing and with lots of ‘snap offs’. The prospects for the next week look excellent with the fish really switching on and enjoying the cooler water temperatures.

    Ynysyfro opened on the 16th of February for the 2019 season. Please note the bottom reservoir is unfishable as it is drained for maintenance works.
    The top reservoir is open and is providing some excellent sport. Please note day ticket prices for nonmembers is now 15. This allows you to catch and release 8 fish which includes taking 2 fish for the table. Please note fishing must cease when you kill your second fish.
    Today only a small number of anglers took advantage of the mild weather to fish but all caught 8 fish limit bags. With lures fished on intermediate or floating lines the most successful tactic due to the high number of newly stocked fish.
    Please remember it is barbless hooks only and more information can be obtained on NRFFA’s website.

    Tight lines,
    Ade
