Fly-over of Yet-y-Gors fishery and campsite

Woody's Lake

Woody's Lake at Yet-y-Gors fishery and campsite in Pembrokeshire, Wales Looking along Woody's Lake at Yet-y-Gors

With 17 well spaced pegs, Woody’s Lake is a general fishing lake holding carp to 20lbs and a mix of silvers to about 5lb 8oz including bream and tench to 2lbs. Existing stocks of carp were supplemented with 800 smaller commons and mirrors last year which are growing rapidly and are already over 8oz,

About 100 metres long and 50 metres wide, depths vary with the deepest water being found furthest from the island where it up to nine feet can be found and four feet close in. The top end is shallower ranging between two and three feet with deeper water being found in the margins before it shallows further out.

Because of the varying depths it is essential that anglers plumb their swim before fishing  because a few feet can make all the difference between fishing on the bottom and not.

Woody’s is popular as a float fishing water on both waggler and pole, most baits work well with sweetcorn, pellets and luncheon meat being particularly effective.

Rocky's Lake

Offering 10 pegs, Rocky’s Lake is a long narrow pool which is being developed as a tench, crucian carp and silverfish lake. The lake was stocked with an additional 400 tench and 300 crucians early in 2022 to compliment the many mature fish to that were already in the water.  Rocky’s also holds a good head of bream to about 3lbs as well as roach and rudd to 12oz, skimmers, gudgeon and even eels which go to 3lbs.

Rocky’s Lake is quite weedy in parts with depths that vary from two and a half feet to nine feet. Some of the pegs drop straight down to five or six feet under your feet whilst others only offer two feet in the margins, so once again it pays to plumb the depth where you are fishing.

Pellets, bread, red maggot and luncheon meat are all effective for the tench whilst anglers fishing for the crucians are recommended to fish light with Size 18 or 20s hooks to 2lb line and use maggot, bread or sweetcorn baits.

Baileys Lake

Baileys Lake is Yet-y-Gors’ second general fishing lake. Smaller than Woody’s at about a quarter of an acre in size, it again has 10 pegs, one of which has a track where you can drive to a concrete hard standing peg which has been designed to make it suitable for disabled anglers.

With with it’s own charm and beauty, Baileys is very shallow with a maximum depth of just over three feet. This, combined with the fact that it is heavily stocked with roach, rudd, perch, skimmers and gudgeon makes it an ideal water for younger or inexperienced anglers who can expect to catch a fish virtually every cast when fishing maggots.

To add further interest, fish stocks have been supplemented with the addition of 100 tench, 100 crucians and 300 F1 carp.

Baileys Lake is an ideal water for fishing the pole or waggler with maggots, sweetcorn, bread and luncheon meat all virtually guaranteed to catch plenty of fish.

Caspars lake

Caspar's Lake at Yet-y-Gors fishery and campsite in Pembrokeshire, Wales Caspars Lake at Yet-y-Gors

At about half an acre in size and opened in 2023, Caspars Lake has been developed as Yet-y-Gors’ main carp lake and holds hard fighting grass carp to an impressive 20lbs as well as commons and mirrors to 15lbs and ghost carp to about 12lbs. It is believed the only silver fish in the lake are rudd.

Although the majority of the lake is only three to four and a half feet deep, there is an eight feet deep hole off Peg 1.

The majority of anglers fishing Caspars use modern and traditional carp fishing techniques with a variety of flavours of 16mm boilies or pellets fished over a bed of free offerings and hemp.

Having said that, some anglers prefer to fish a waggler using maggots, bread, sweetcorn or luncheon meet as bait.

Although plumbing the depths is not important when fishing modern carp fishing techniques, it is worth doing for anglers fishing a waggler, particularly is they are wanting to fish the deeper hole off Peg 1.
