These both used to be fabulous salmon rivers, and consequently hard to get access too. The salmon are now fewer and further between than they used to be, and much more focus – particularly on the Wye – is on the fishing for trout, grayling and coarse fish like chub and barbel. The Wye and Usk Foundation has set up a website - – which gives access to some great stretches, as well as advice on where to stay, finding a guide and so on. They are beautiful rivers in a beautiful part of the land.

Fishing for Natives

Thoughout the times and ages of the earth, more and more species are tending to decline due to the lack of improper handling and lack of release from certain key species.

Although Salmon swim many great miles only to spawn and die, that is their lifes circle and should be respected.

Improper fish counts and lack of knowledge of others only furthers the decline of these beautiful fish.
