Welcome to NRFFA

The Association’s waters are Ynysyfro Reservoirs, Newport, Gwent, South Wales. These are approximately half a mile from the Fourteen Locks, Canal Visitor Centre, High Cross, Newport and about 1 mile from junction 27 of the M4.

The reservoirs consist of two lakes of 16 and 10 acres respectively, they are well secluded and a good head of fish is maintained by regular stocking. The reservoirs  offer fantastic value for money trout fishing with the following visitor prices for the 2018 season; a two fish day ticket (including catch and release) costing £12 for non-members (£5 for under sixteens).
Ynysyfro operates a 16 fish catch and release policy (8 per reservoir) with a 2 fish kill limit. Fishing must cease after 2nd fish killed. All fishing will be with fly only using barbless hooks. Season ticket holders will be offered a 100 fish kill limit from unlimited visits to the reservoirs. To avoid any embarrassment please refer to the fishing regulations page to ensure you enjoy your fishing at Ynysyfro. Please note the reservoirs will close for the 2018/19 season on the 6th of January 2019.

Fishermen with no experience of fly-fishing who are interested in joining our association, are welcome to contact any committee member, who will be pleased to arrange for a member to help them get started.

Because the reservoirs are so well established the fly life can be prolific, with plenty of buzzers, sedge, silverhorns, damsels and cranefly present. Nymph and dry fly fishing is particularly productive throughout the season.

Two quality boats are available on the lower reservoir for the use of members and their guests only. A warm welcome awaits all visitors and there are toilet and shelter facilities on site.

Ynysyfro is an important wildlife habitat and particular care is necessary with respect to its wildlife. Take particular care when using the top reservoir due to the public use of the lane and the presence of horse riders.

Please ensure all gates are closed after you and the top gate is to be kept locked at all times!!!!  Also, remember to take your litter and discarded nylon home.
