The coast around Newborough, and most of Anglesey, offers great opportunities for sea fishing. But, if you prefer fly fishing, Llyn Coron provides a beautiful setting for just that. As long ago as 1874, the lake was mentioned in Black’s Picturesque Guide to Wales as being a favourite with anglers .
Llyn Coron is a natural lake formed by the sand dunes at Aberffraw blocking a number of streams from running towards the sea. Llyn Coron collects the water from these small streams and lets it run out to the sea through the Afon Ffraw.
Permits are required for fishing the “hard fighting wild brown trout” and other fish the lake contains:
In theory, there is a path that goes almost all the way around the lake and provides a nice circular walk. Sadly, in practice, the path is often overgrown and sometimes blocked completely by fences… So, if you do decide to walk around the lake, be prepared!
There are two lay-bys off the A4080 just after the hamlet of Llangadwaladr where you can park to access footpaths leading to the lake if you’re not fishing.
