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.
