Welsh sport at its best Nine Oaks a top fishing destination A
NYONE holidaying in Wales this summer and looking for somewhere to fish or stay should try Nine Oaks Fishery. The peaceful venue, a couple of miles inland from the west coast of Wales, has three coarse and three fly lakes as well as self-catering accommodation in the form of cottages and static caravans.
The three coarse waters – Main Lake, House Pool and Novices – are well-stocked with carp, tench, bream and roach. Main Lake has an average depth of 4ft-5ft, with plenty of features to fish to. It’s full of carp, but the roach fishing is also excellent. Don’t get caught out by the name ‘Novices Pool’, which is lovely for beginners but holds carp to 8lb and some cracking roach. Fishing simple float rigs with maggot and corn will catch carp averaging 1lb-2lb and 6oz roach all day long. For a mixed coarse session, Nine Oaks takes some beating!
