I feel like a tent that wants to be a kite!  


Most months throughout the summer the Cilcain Reservoirs are restocked with fish.

Up to 100 fish may be added to the large reservoir each time.

Covid 19 Restrictions

Day tickets are once again available on Cilcain reservoirs following the ban imposed by the Covid 19 pandemic, however, anglers are requested to observe the specific rules applicable to this period of restraint.  Rules are posted at each reservoir gate.

All reservoirs are now fully functional and fishing well though following the hot spell water levels are a little low. Ticket holders fishing the Garth will notice that there is now a hard standing for cars and all are requested to park "nose in" on this area to leave the approach to the reservoir free to facilitate stocking.  

Thanks again to everyone for their patience and consideration during this difficult time.

Opening times for the community shop are somewhat restricted at present being 08.30hrs. – 13.00 hrs. but telephone ahead to check exact times.  Telephone: 01352 741354.  

On completion of fishing, catch returns and keys must be deposited in the letter box by the door.  

The reservoirs at Cilcain are monitored and maintained by Welsh Water who has posted most a number of notices warning of the dangers of deep water. 

The waters are rented by Cilcain Fly Fishing Association for the express purpose of fly fishing; no other form of exercise is permitted.  In the recent hot weather, a number of youngsters were seen swimming in the reservoirs and the Association would draw attention to the notices posted at each reservoir.  The waters are dangerous, they are deep and the temperature drops dramatically in the deeper areas.  Furthermore, they are situated on private property and unauthorised entry constitutes trespass. 

Whilst swimming may seem a pleasant option in these weather conditions please do not spoil it for those who pay to use the water. Do avoid putting yourselves at risk.
