Just under 1 mile of double bank fishing in between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Set in the shadow of Goodrich Castle, Middle Hill Court is one of the premier Wye salmon waters while also offering some first class coarse fishing. For salmon anglers the beat has several named pools including the Rope Pool and Ford Stream. The fishery is suited to both fly and spinner and the wading is relatively easy when required. Barbel, chub and pike are common in this part of the Wye. The barbel run to double figures and the best pike in recent years weighed in at 28lbs. Other species include roach, dace, perch and even the occasional carp.
It is also a noted spring salmon fishery and includes the famous pools of The Rope, the tail of The Vanstone and The Parson Tree Stream. The Ford Stream provides a lovely hour’s fly-fishing set under a backdrop of Goodrich Castle.
Beat clearance is usually done ahead of the start of the coarse season but the banks can become overgrown, particularly in the summer months. Wading is relatively easy where required.
The parking spot is right next to the river.
Canoe traffic can be heavy from 10am to 4pm at weekends during the warmer months, and especially during bank holidays.
