Located a couple of miles downstream of Ross on Wye, Upper Hill Court is approx 1 mile of left bank fishing split into 2 main parts. The upper section is accessible by vehicle right to the river bank, the lower just a 50 m walk from the parking area. Specimen barbel have been caught here in recent years and although the access is a little wild in the early summer, the stretch is more accessible and fishes very well in winter. Access is varied, with some well-marked pegs and some more difficult. In wet conditions, a dog spike is advisable.
A relatively short stretch but it contains three noted salmon catches: Hom Pil; Pashley’s Crib and Hom Stream. It is suitable for a single salmon rod or two people fishing together. The banks are overgrown in places but with waders the middle section is all wade-able over bedrock and gravel, fishable easily from the bank.
Between 1st Nov and 14th March, exclusivity at this beat is not guaranteed. There is a small membership that may fish from time to time – this membership has access to several other fisheries and is made up predominantly of locals who fish evenings and weekends.
