Wales and the Marches is blessed with a huge variety of still waters and the Fishing Passport offers access to a wide range of these for both game and coarse anglers.
High up in the hills and mountains are the upland Llyns, offering the fly fisher a chance to escape from civilization and catch wild mountain brown trout in truly remote surroundings (occasionally stocked trout too). Meanwhile, further down the valleys are a range of reservoirs, mostly owned by Dwr Cymru/Welsh Water, that provide fantastic fishing for both brown and stocked rainbow trout. Fly fishers have access to all the reservoirs but some allow spinning and bait fishing too. Again, these still waters are remote and set amongst some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK.
The Hidden Lakes are a series of smaller still waters, tucked away in the countryside of Herefordshire but also some high altitude fishing in Wales too.
There are some fantastic opportunities to fish for species such as wild carp, crucian carp, tench, and rudd to name a few.
