Tal-y-llyn Lake is a 220 acre ribbon lake situated north-east of Tywyn and north of Machynlleth at the foot of Cadair Idris in Southern Snowdonia. the River Dysynni flows from the lake through the village of Abergynolwyn to the sea north of Tywyn on the Mid Wales coast near Tonfanau.

This beautiful lake offers superb brown trout fishing from both boat or bank and as the lake has an average depth of only 8ft floating lines can be used from the outset. The fishing season runs from April to mid October and in the later part of the season sea trout and salmon run up the river to Tal-y-Llyn, and the lake is famed for its particularly large sea trout.

The nearby Talyllyn Railway is a historic narrow-gauge steam railway running from Tywyn to Abergynolwyn and Nant Gwernol.
