Set in the rolling Welsh countryside Cefn Mably Lakes is a fishing complex situated between Newport and Cardiff and only 5 mins from the M4. There are 8 lakes in total all set out amongst beautiful Welsh countryside.

Horseshoe Pond is one of the original Carp lakes. Constructed in 1993 its matured into a top Carp fishing water. Stocked with Carp to 28lb which are nicely complemented by some big Barbel, Bream & Tench it really does offer some fantastic sport.

The Carp Pond is now 17 years old and has matured into a stunning lake. It's about 1.5 acres in size. It's the place to be if you're after a good bag of mixed carp, varying in size from 4lb right up to 25lb fish. It produces some fantastic sport especially in the warmer months. The depth ranges from 2' to about 9' at its deepest point. Best baits to be used in the summer months when the fish are on the surface include bread and dog biscuits.

The Match Pond has 40 pegs all of which have been designed with match fishing in mind. Each peg is served via a gravel path and is easily accessible. There is a large island running through the middle of the pond, which is no further than 22m from the bank making it perfect for pole, waggler or feeder fishing.

There are 2 shelves that run throughout the lake. 1 is at 2ft the other at 4ft and the bed of the lake is 6ft. This offers numerous options for the angler. The beauty of this lake is that not all the matches are won on the pole and not all the fish are lumpy mirror carp. Feeder fishing often beats pole anglers, just as pole and paste anglers often beat up in the water anglers. It really is that unpredictable.

The Bridge Pond is a 30 peg pleasure fishing pond. It’s shaped attractively in a figure of 8 formation with 2 separate islands. The pond has a 3’ shelf around the pond as a feature. And has a maximum depth of about 6’. It has lots of bank space and all 30 pegs are linked by a gravel path. This pond has the most amount of variety, there are large quantities of Crucian, F1 Mirror, Common and Ghost Carp. To complement the Carp are Bream, Tench, Barbel and Roach.

The Willow Pond is the newest edition to the complex. Originally set out to be an alternative fly - fishing pond demand for space meant we soon turned it into a highly stocked, high action coarse pond. Mainly stocked with F1 Carp there is also a good head of skimmers and chub.

This is an ideal pond for a begginner who wishes to learn how to fish or perfect a few skills. Many people just fish it because there are so many fish to be caught. Designed in a kidney shape, there are no shelves just a gradual decline from the bank to the deck which reaches 7' at it's deepest point. As you can see the pond is neat and tidy with a gravel path serving 15 spacious platforms. There is also parking very close to the pond with easy disabled access.

Other lakes include Overflow Pond, Newpond, Spring Pond and Lodge Lake. For details on these as well as much more, visit Cefn Mabyl's fine website.
