FISHING ON THE USK

Enjoy fishing on the Usk on a beat located just a mile or so below Newbridge-on-Usk. The middle section lies between Usk and Crickhowell and the upper reaches above Crickhowell, Brecon and beyond.

The nature of the river below Crickhowell remains much the same with deep pools, long riffles and big meanders the norm. Above Crickhowell the river is faster and straighter. None of the tributaries offer any significant fishing but play an important part in fishing where they join the main river and can have impact with summer storms to liven up particular stretches. Given sufficient water salmon can populate the river all the way to Crickhowell within two days or so.

This is the perfect day out for anyone interested in fishing or those looking to try it for the first time! A chance to access some of the best salmon, sea trout, trout, grayling and coarse fishing Wales has to offer.
