The dam was breached in the early 90’s for safety reasons, it has since been partly rebuilt to supply a water turbine, but not to its former level. Although not up to its past productivity, still worth a cast.

Llyn Cwm Foel is at around 1,100′, 4 acres and about 1 and a half hours walk from Tanygrisiau. It fishes well with spinner or fly for small wild brown trout.
