On Sunday 12th July, Dolgellau Angling Association held its annual locals competition at Llyn Cynwch.
Weather conditions favoured both competitions, Fly fishing in the morning and bait competition in the afternoon however the fishing proved to be more challenging than expected.
In the juniors section, Sion Davenport won with a bag of six fish weighing 9lb and in the seniors Rob Redman won with his bag of five fish weighing in at 8lb 11oz, beating two other bags of five fish. Dylan Davenport won the heaviest fish at 2lb 11oz.
There were 22 competing in three categories. Aron Humphreys won the children's juniors competition with his bag of ten fish at 15lb 12oz. LLia Edwards won the under 16's with two fish at 2lb 7oz. In the seniors, Darren Vaughan beat off two others to win the heaviest bag with his four fish at 6lb 12oz. Darren also had the heaviest fish at 2lb 1oz, just beating Beryl Roberts fishing for the first time with her lovely brownie of 2lb. Cups were presented by Mark Roberts, vice chairman together with rods for the children.
81 fish were caught on the day & reports that the lake had fished well days before with fish of 4lb reported. Best fish caught this season so far is a 11lb rainbow.
