There is excellent salmon fishing to be had on this ¾ mile, left bank stretch of the Lower Wye, about three miles above Bigsweir. Flowing through a forested, steep-sided valley, this is possibly the Wye’s most productive location with six revered pools; these include the famous Cadora and Cockpit Pools where fresh fish enter daily on the tides. Apart from the odd obstructive boulder wading is fairly easy on a gravel bed, and there are croys to cast from in the middle and lower sections.
The fishery has secure, off-road parking although the hut is retained for private use only.

Quality coarse fishing is available outside the salmon season. Tickets available through the Wye & Usk Foundation.
