Details of Trout Fishing and Trout Fishing holidays at Nineoaks Angling Centre. Nineoaks is open all year from sunrise to sunset. Although not a big complex, nevertheless it is a good one. Naturally one of the prettiest fisheries, and a first class Angling center. Chosen in 2010 as an Angler's Mail Top 100 Commercial Fishery. With 3 Trout Lakes and 2 Coarse Lakes, plus a small Novices Coarse Pool, and top class self-catering Holiday Accommodation in Cottages and quality Static Caravans.
Nineoaks is Disabled Friendly with relatively easy access everywhere. Our Disabled Access Statement. There are a large variety of clean, hard fighting Rainbow Trout, Blue Trout and small Brown Trout in each of the 3 Trout Pools! All quality hard fighting Fish!
The stocking policy is with a minimum 2lb Trout, with plenty of 2 1/4lb, and quite a few 3lb and 4lb Trout plus a few bigger ones.
The 3 Trout Lakes are about 1/2-3/4 acre in size called, Derwen, Weir and Pallen. Derwen is about 13ft deep, Weir is 8ft+ deep and Pallen about 6ft. Derwen and Weir are roughly round and Pallen is an elongated triangle. Derwen is 10 yards from the Car Park and Weir and Pallen each about 40 yards of the Car Park.
These lakes are not plain "holes in the Ground" but have a very natural setting surrounded by bushes and trees. Casting is easy in places and more difficult or challenging in others. Side casting near or under the overhanging branches often produces the fish. They're not stupid, they know where to go where you can't easily get them!
Like everywhere, fishing is generally with wet flies, and dry flies during the summer close against the reed beds. Montanas, Diawl Bachs, Damsels and Nymphs in small sizes out produce large flies. Summer months when the sun is high and cloudless, blue skies are frequent, during these times fishing will be hard. Fish deep, or under the bushes with a dead slow, almost stationery, retrieve.
On the accommodation side, you will have to go a long way to find better, cleaner, sweet smelling holiday accommodation than those provided here. We have a couple of Static Caravans, overlooking the lakes, a semi-detached bungalow (graded by the Welsh Tourist Board at 4 stars) plus a 4star small cottage annexe, also graded by the Tourist Board; They are more than suitable for an angler, their partner or a family to have a luxury holiday a couple of miles from the beaches. They have central heating, fully equipped kitchens, leather couches, power showers - the lot. The only thing we don't have is a "hot Tub"!
