Prysor Angling Association - Llyn Trawsfynydd

Set among truly spectacular scenery, Llyn Trawsfynydd (Trawsfynydd Lake) lies alongside the A470 trunk road between Dolgellau and Porthmadog.

Llyn Trawsfynydd is a popular spot for fishing in Snowdonia, but at five miles long and with a surface area of 1200 acres, there's never any need to worry about overcrowding; you'll have all the peace and quiet you could wish for.

The lake has a healthy head of wild brown trout and is regularly stocked with rainbow trout. You'll also find a good number of coarse fish, including perch, rudd and pike. And if you enjoy a spot of twitching, you'll have plenty of water fowl to keep you entertained, and even the occasional osprey visit if you're lucky. 

The Prysor Angling Association was founded in 1898 and in the century-and-a-bit since then, the club has grown and prospered.

The Prysor Angling Lake Management Committee - all volunteers - manage Llyn Trawsfynydd without the help of an outside body or water company.


Llyn Trawsfynydd has a good reputation for its top of the water sport and its good quality hard fighting fish. It's a multi-method lake, where there are large areas available for bank anglers to fish either bait or fly, and there are several areas of bank for fly fishing only.

Forty boats with outboard motors are available for fly fishing only; there are no prohibited areas.
