Spend a perfect day fishing at one of the most picturesque lakes in Wales.

Set amidst the beautiful mountain scenery of the Afan Forest Park. The Glyncorrwg Ponds fishery started life in 1994, and lies beside the tree lined valley. Fed by mountain streams and the river Corrwg, a tributary of the river Afan.

The fishery consists of three man-made lakes, and are well stocked with rainbow trout up to 25lb in weight and two coarse lakes stocked with bream, roach, and tench, and carp up to 38lb in weight.

In 2007 the Glyncorrwg Ponds were voted one of the best stillwater fisheries in Wales by “Visit Wales”.
