Llyen Peninsula----Uwchmynnyd (High and low water mark)

If rock fishing`s your game,then this area is a must,offering beautiful,scenic,litter free marks that offer the chance of specimen fish.The depth of water coupled with the phenominal tidal flow are key ingredients which make this a prolific area for a wide variety of species.Find a spot in one of the large bays out of the main flow and you will take mack,pollack,launce on spinning gear....float fish or leger rag/crab for quality wrasse and pollack....heavier gear with large mack baits will take conger and huss which feed in daylight due to the depth of water.....be in the right spot at the right time and you could hook tope too 8)
Getting down to the marks involves a good hike followed by steep climbs,so great care should be taken at all times....never fish here on your own as you are completely isolated,and avoid it if it`s wet as the climbs will be treacherous :!:
Info on one of the marks can be found HERE
there`s many other good spots along the front....just have a recce and see what happens.
Getting there...............follow directions for Morfa Nefyn and keep on going towards the end of the Llyen (Bardsey Sound)...you`ll pick up signs for Uwchmynnyd,and you can park in the large area at St.Mary`s Well.
Park in the same place but walk a good 15 mins to the left,and you will arrive at the huge bay of Porth Felen....the water here is up to 100ft deep in places.....
This mark is a grade 1 hardcore rock mark,which is not easy to get to,but it`s worth it as the scenery and fishing is superb 8)

It`s many years since i`ve fished the area (last time was down from St Mary`s Well,but we fished the next large bay at Porth Felen....
Image
A lot of places are impossibly steep,but you can find the odd safe perch here and there....
