Ceredigion - Fron Farm Fishery

4 lakes for all abilities

In the centre of the picturesque Ceredigion countryside, Fron Farm Fishery is tucked away between the towns of Bronant and Bontnewydd and is the place to head to if you fancy a day of fly fishing or coarse fishing.

The Fron Farm Fishery has four lakes in sizes ranging from 1 to 2.5 acres. These are the Lower Trout Lake, the Upper Trout Lake, The Lower Course Lake, and the Upper Course Lake.

The Lower Trout Lake is more than 20 feet deep and has naturally level terrain with plenty of trees at the dges providing shade. The lake offers stocked rainbow and blue trouts as well as naturally occuring brown trout that reproduce in the clean waters.

Even in the hottest Welsh summers, the trout can stay cool in the Upper Trout Lake, which is about 10 feet deep. Although it's much smaller than the lower lake, it has the same species of fish as the lower lake. On this lake, casting is simple, making it ideal for novices and younger anglers.

The 18-foot-deep Lower Course Lake descends gently from the parking lot. Due to its wide-open banks, it has a healthy population of mirror and common carp. It also has a healthy population of species like tench, rudd, barbel, and bream. You might even be able to catch an eel if you're lucky.

Upper Course Lake is a small body of water with an island and a depth of 4 to 8 feet. Every kind of fish has naturally spawned in its depths, making it a more mature lake. Here, you can find a wide range of carp, as well as rudd, bream, tench, perch, and other species. This lake offers night fishing, but this has to be arranged in advance.
