Cregennan Lakes are owned by the National Trust, and are situated on the northern slopes of Cader ldris, some 800 ft. above sea level, overlooking the beautiful Mawddach Estuary, with car park, just 5 miles from Dolgellau.
There are two natural lakes:
Large lake with beautiful small island, 27 acres, wild brown trout only. Fly spin/worm.
Small lake, 13 acres, regularly stocked with blue & rainbow trout, plus a good head of wild brownies. Fly only.
Ideal for families to serious anglers. Fishing is permitted between 8.00 am. and 1 hour after dusk.
Here, the National Trust owns two small hill farms where the rough grazing is managed in the traditional way. A sign of summer here is the arrival of that dainty visitor, the wheatear, which is often difficult to spot. A renowned and often photographed beauty spot. There are tremendous views of the Mawddach Estuary and Barmouth Bridge from near the lake.
There is a car park and toilets by the lake.
