Additional information:

The Goodrich Court beat is just over 1 mile of double bank premier Wye salmon fishing, a few miles downstream of Ross on Wye. The fishery is reserved exclusively for salmon anglers and is a succession of classic pools – The V, Dog Hole, Maddox, Vanstone, etc. This is where Robert Pashley caught most of his 10,000+ fish. Suited to both fly and spinner, much of the beat is fishable from the bank although wading is relatively easy when required.

This beat has a resident Ghillie (Tuesday to Sunday). Please contact the Foundation by telephone should you wish to use this service. Alternatively, his telephone number is on the information provided once a booking is made.

Please note that the ghillie retains a rod on Sundays and when only one rod is booked for the day, the house reserves a rod which may be fished by the ghillie.

Coarse fishing allowed from November 1st

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.

Rules and Regulations
  • Dogs allowed but must be kept under control at all times
  • Catch & Release for salmon at all times
  • National bye-laws must be observed and it is up to anglers to familiarise themselves with these.
