Private River Fishing In The Brecon Beacons
Wild brown trout are what you will be fishing for on the Usk, we don’t stock the river at Gliffaes. A 1lbs fish is a good fish here but we have seen much bigger, but the otters seem to get there first.
Gliffaes Hotel has about a three-quarter-mile stretch of single bank fishing below the hotel divided into 3 beats; The Top Beat, The Middle Beat and The Salmon Pool. A ten-minute car ride upstream takes you to Llandetty. Here the Hotel has a further mile of double-bank fishing; Llandetty Left Bank and Llandetty Right Bank.
To fish our beats properly you will need chest waders.
Fishing is primarily for Hotel residents and I suggest that if you want to fish you ‘book a beat’ when you book your room.

We are extremely pleased to have been awarded the Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice Award for Fishing Hotels 2021.
We are proud supporters of the Wye and Usk Foundation who are working tirelessly to improve the habitat of both catchments. Miles more fishing can be had via their ‘Passport Scheme’.
