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.

Regrettably all Cilcain reservoirs are closed for day tickets during the period of the
Covid 19 lockdown
Cilcain Fly Fishing Association would like to announce that following the traumas of last season, when due to matters entirely beyond our control we lost the use of our two best reservoirs, we are now able to continue with the sale of day tickets. Reservoirs 1&2 are fully fishable as is Cae Newydd. All reservoirs are now fully functional and fishing well. Cilcain Fly Fishing Association waters are back to normal and we look forward to welcoming day tickets once more. 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.
As from the 8th April 2019 sales of day tickets will be transferred to the community shop which is now situated in the village hall. Opening times are from 08.30hrs. - 17.00hrs. 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.
