Fishing in Snowdonia
Posted on 18 Jul 2014
One of the most relaxing and popular activities in Snowdonia is fishing. It is a sport that has been enjoyed by people of all ages for generations and the Snowdonia region is one of the best places to take part in game fishing and sea fishing.
If you are staying with Tyn Rhos Hotel in Snowdonia this summer and are looking for a wonderful activity to enjoy outdoors in the sunshine, fishing should be high up on your list. Being situated next to both the Snowdonia coast and Snowdonia National Park makes Tyn Rhos Country House the ideal accommodation for all those with a passion for fishing.
Just a stone’s throw away from Tyn Rhos Country House Hotel in Snowdonia are a host of fishing options, whether you are a novice or experienced fisherman. Unlike other, rougher sports available in the countryside, fishing is all about peaceful settings, patience and a healthy balance of the tranquil and exciting. This is why it remains a sport that can be enjoyed by the young, old and everyone in between.
Locals know that Snowdonia, with its stunning coastal areas and numerous inland lakes, is the best place for fishing in North Wales and if you are a tourist and love to fish you will not be disappointed with the choices on offer.
Snowdonia’s famous coast lies just west of Tyn Rhos Hotel. For shore and sea fishing the Llyn Peninsula offers access to the Irish Sea. This beautiful area running along Snowdonia’s coast provides excellent deep water fishing remarkably close to shore. This is thanks to mountain granite which ends in steep cliffs as it reaches the sea. With sandy and pebble beaches dotted across this wide expanse of coast, fish are present in abundance.
Another excellent location for sea fishing that is just a short drive from Tyn Rhos is the Menai Strait. This strip of sea separates Anglesey from the rest of North Wales. This is an excellent choice of fishing destination particularly during spring and autumn time. You will find sea bass the most numerous and there is plenty of bait on offer such as crab and lug.
As well as wonderful fishing grounds the area is full of natural beauty and impressive views. It is recommended you fish on a rising tide for best results.
For game fishing you will be spoiled for choice when you stay with us as Snowdonia is home to over 100 lakes and many rivers! With so many natural and manmade lakes of different shapes, depths and characters supporting different fish life Snowdonia truly is a fishing paradise.
