Rules and Regulations
The fishing season on the Usk begins on March 3rd and the trout season finishes on 30th September while the salmon season finishes on 17th October.
A trout rod on the Gliffaes water (for 2021) costs £32 and a salmon rod £40. The costs are the same whether you are on the water for one hour or twelve hours. You will also need an Environment Agency rod licence, available from main Post Offices and online. The fishing season on the Usk begins on March 3rd and the trout season finishes on 30th September while the salmon season finishes on 17th October.
Fly only and barbless hooks for trout, and feel free to keep a trout for your breakfast, which we will cook for you. All salmon must be returned, and salmon fishing is now strictly fly only.
Residents always take priority on the fishing beats at Gliffaes. The best advice is to call the day before (01874 730 371) you wish to come and fish to see if there is space on the river.
River Conditions and Water Height
You can check the height and the condition of the water via the webcam at Glan Usk which is about a mile and a half downstream of our water. The Usk rises and falls pretty quickly after heavy rain.
We have been looking after fishermen since 1948, and whilst you are with us you will be most comfortable and well cared for, in one of our luxurious rooms. With delicious locally sourced food and an extensive wine list, you can be sure of a relaxing stay.
