Just over a mile of right bank fishing just upstream of Monmouth. Opposite the Glamorgan Anglers stretch. This is a lovely fishery with stunning views reaching up to the Forest of Dean. Access varies from tree lined to open fields, and the fishing has been excellent here over the years.
The expansive, weedy runs are home to all species of Wye fish, especially chub which hide amongst the ranunculus and under the overhanging willows. When the weed has died back in autumn, trotting sport should prove spectacular – with large catches of dace and roach achievable with the right baiting approach. Barbel numbers are exceptional, with several double figure fish caught in the last few seasons.
Between 1st Nov and 14th March, exclusivity at this stretch 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.
