River Usk Venues

Venue; RIVER USK
The River Usk (Welsh: Afon Wysg) rises of mid- in the Carmarthen Fans mountains or Fan BrycheiniogWales, in the westernmost part of the Brecon Beacons National Park then flows south-east through Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and the eponymous town of Usk past the Roman legionary fortress of Caerleon, through the heart of Newport city and into the Severn estuary at Uskmouth beyond Newport. The Usk has long been a noted salmon and trout fishing river with a national and international reputation. Salmon of over 30 lb (14 kg) can still be caught. The river has the highest estimated salmon egg deposition of any river south of Cumbria and the Scottish rivers, and exceeded its spawning target. The river has recently been rated as the best fly fishing water in Wales for salmon and inside the UK Top Ten. The Normal Tidal Limit (NTL) of the river is the bridge at Newbridge-on-Usk, some five miles north of Newport.

The Coarse fishing permits are scarce but can be found within the list of venues, Landowners / fisheries prefer the coarse fish to be removed, but Generally, Dace can be caught throughout the river and are of good quality. I have caught many around the 1lb mark, and Chub are to be found in pockets. Good quality roach can be caught around the Usk town area and the tidal stretches
