Boat Fishing - Full Day Rate


Try your hand at fly fishing from one of our brand new fleet of electric powered boats. We regularly stock the lake with rainbow trout, and native brown trout may also be caught.

Pricing is based on the hire of a boat which has a maximum occupancy of 2 people fishing. Pricing does not include your fishing permit, you will need to add a permit in the addons section for each fisherman on the boat. A maximum bag limit of two fish per adult permit or one fish per junior permit (16 years under). Additional permits and buoyancy aids can be purchased from the Activity Centre. Following your bag catch, you are welcome to continue fishing - catch and release using barbless hooks only. Permits are only permitted if you hold a valid NRW Rod Licence which you must show proof of when signing in.

We reserve the right to withdraw access to the water if the conditions are not suitable or unsafe.

6 to 17 Years Old: Can be on a craft but must be accompanied on the same craft by a guardian (18+).

18+: Can use any craft on the water in line with our T&C’s.

Upon arrival to Llys y Fran, please sign in at either the Visitor Centre or Activity Centre Reception. Please ensure all consent forms and permits have been signed before your arrival. You will be advised to collect a return slip when you sign in as this feedback helps with our stocking.

Once you have disembarked, you can continue on your fishing adventure on land from our banks. Once completed, please ensure you provide us with your return slip by posting it in the return box located at the Visitor Centre.

Please be advised dogs are not permitted in or on the lake under any circumstances. Dogs must always remain on a lead when on site.
