Fishing on the Island of Anglesey

There are many places to fish on Anglesey, both for the sea angler and the coarse fisherman. With several lakes originally formed during the ice age, and the two largest lakes man-made. These two lakes are Llyn (Lake) Alaw and Llyn Cefni. A visit to Lake Cefni (located in the village of Bodffordd) can be a great day out, as whilst the fishermen fish (boats available for hire), there is an opportunity to walk around this large lake, and take in the beauty of the countryside, watching the many species of birds, ducks, geese, and swans. Take a picnic, as all you will find out here is – simply Nature.

Fishing at Amlwch Port Quay

Whilst taking photos of Amlwch Port, I came across this bunch of lads from Liverpool. They were fishing off the end of the quay and had caught whiting, several coalfish, and a flattie. They apparently travel quite often to fish here, and say it is a good mark in the summer months. Great set of lads.

I thought this was a good photo of a lobster potter returning to Amlwch Port after laying his pots.

Llyn Alaw Reservoir Fish

Another wonderful place to fish on Anglesey is Llyn (Lake) Alaw. A large expanse of water where it is easy to fish from the sides, and in parts, you may even take your car.

Anglesey is of course totally surrounded by water – sea water, and it is almost possible to fish the sea from anywhere. Whether you want to fish from a boat, the rocks, or from the beach, you are sure to enjoy the time here.
