Doldowlod offers approximately 2 miles of double bank fishing on the main Wye just upstream of Newbridge. It is a secluded, peaceful stretch of river, especially renowned for its grayling fishing, with the best prospects from the end of August to November. The river here is 20-30 yards wide and provides a good variety of water, holding a good head of these fish. The beat also offers wild brown trout fishing through the season and salmon fishing given sustained high water in April, May and June with best prospects in October. In recent years numerous 2lb+ grayling have been caught.
The fishery is made up of 2 beats, Ystrad and The Channels, giving anglers a good variety of pocket water, pools and rocky gutters. Wading is tricky in places so felt and studded soles are mandatory.
There are two parking spots. One right next to the right for the upper section. The lower section parking spot has a 200m (220 yard) walk to the river.
Half price evening tickets can be purchased after 1pm on the day of fishing. Fishing is allowed from 5pm.
Block booking is available on this beat. You can book all the tickets available (sometimes at a discounted price). You can only fish up to the maximum daily number of people allowed for that type of fishing.
