Welcome to Nant Moel, this fly fishing only reservoir is situated in over 12 acres of idyllic countryside at the top of the Cynon valley, between Aberdare and Merthyr Tydfil. The reservoir is run by Aberdare and District Angling Association formed over 50 years ago. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming club open to anglers of all abilities.
We have fantastic disabled facilities thanks to four level platforms going out into the reservoir slightly. Also ramps and flat paths for wheelchair users to have a great day fishing or for novices to get that extra distance. We have also installed a number of strategically placed benches for a well earned rest. There is a secure ample spaced car park for your vehicle. Members can enjoy the use of our cabin to change, enjoy a flask of tea or coffee or just catch up on the latest news with friends. There is also a shelter for all to use to dodge the occasional shower.
We also have a rowing boat for full members to use. (not available to day ticket holders). Own electric engines allowed. The reservoir is stocked regularly with renowned hard fighting rainbow trout averaging 2lb with many larger ones up to 7lb, with the occasional blue trout. We have a team of very active Bailiffs day and night.
There is a limit of two fish to be killed per day to (fishing to cease once 2 are killed) 4 per week (Monday to Sunday) with fly fishing only. Catch and release is also permitted if barbless hooks are used, this does however carry a 10 fish per day limit. The season runs from Saturday 27th February 2021 to January 31st 2022. Annual or day tickets can be puchased at Hirwaun post office, 35 High Street, Hirwaun, Aberdare, CF449SW (Monday to Saturday 9-5:30pm). Day tickets can also be purchased via the paypal link on this site for the day of use.
