Things to do


Rhayader and Elan Valley Angling Association offer an angling paradise, at prices that are hard to beat.

Fly-fishing only is available in the beautiful Elan Valley. A series of dams has formed four reservoirs with a total area of 850 acres, supporting a good head of wild brown trout. Also the Claerwen Reservoir, 900 acres of wild brown trout fishing.
The Association owns Llyngwyn, a 16-acre spring fed natural lake in quiet surroundings, with private car park at the lakeside. The lake is stocked regularly throughout the year with rainbow trout, and there is also a good stock of brown trout. Almost daily, red kites can be seen hovering above.
The Elan Valley reservoirs and Llyngwyn Lake are Troutmaster waters.For the angler who is looking for river fishing, the Association has five miles of the river Wye for salmon, brown trout and grayling; two miles of the river Elan for brown trout, grayling, pike and some coarse fish; and three miles of the river Marteg (a tributary of the Wye) for brown trout and two miles of the Claerwen River for wild brown trout fishing.
