We have a saveylor inflatable canoe and are considering bringing it along if that's ok?
Sarah is the Commodore of the sailing club so will keep you posted, but there is no day membership allowed to Clywedog reservoir currently so no canoeing if your not a member I'm afaid.
Hey Greg/Davy569 - Tall Trees put the above quote on the first page - I don't want to spoil your fun as you may be able to paddle elsewhere, but the Clywedog is not possible at this time. I will admit to a family tie with the sailing club - my daughter is a member - and I think it would be remiss of me if I didn't mention it and make the current situation clear.

Cheers

Sorry Pete, but we have been told we will have limited access (probably 4). See my post earlier.

Just to confuse everyone have just changed profile name from tall.trees to forgeways (It's been my business name for a few years now, so about time to change) still the same old silly bugger underneath

Just to throw even more activities into the mix.. Has anyone any experience fishing the clywedog or surrounding rivers? I can bring my fly rod (and a spare if anyone wants a go) if it’s worth it?

I have fly fished (floating line and flys) the reservoir 4 or 5 times now and as long as you can cast, you will most likely catch as it stocked weekly with rainbow trout that attack most things. The boys at the club shop will happily sell you the best performing fly of the week.

You cannot fish from any boat other than a fishing club one.

I recommend buying an evening ticket (fish from about 1500) and it's half the day ticket price.

This is a slight aside. For anyone interested, Iolo Williams recently did a series called Wales Last Wilderness.

In the first episode he visited Llyn Clywedog and chatted with the guy that runs the fishing club (or hires out the boats, not sure which) and he also visits the local Osprey nests too.

It is a very beautiful part of the country.

Excellent! An evening on the lake would be magical. Thanks for the tips both!

I watched the golden eagle one last night, I shall have to check out the rest of the series. Love Iolo!

You'd be very welcome and I'm sure you'll pick up a lot if you can make it.
