River was still high but pretty clear. Worked hard to little avail. Very strong wind and falling barometer. Beautiful water, we'll definitely be back.

Beautiful stretch, challenging water conditions with the river high and coloured, difficult to present bait effectively as a result. Lost a large fish in the stretch before the wooded section early on, then settled into the pump pool for the afternoon. We took 5 barbel in total which we were pleased with given the water conditions. Largest was about 7lb. Hooked something which took off like a rocket and bent my hook out. Can only imagine it was the elusive double.

5 Barbel, 1 Chub

The river was high and coloured and full of leaves from the high blustery wind which made for challenging fishing. My favourite spot was charging through so fast that a float was out of sight in seconds and a ledger was dragged round by leaves. I moved towards the bottom of the meadow where there was some slacker water and found some dace willing to feed. Unfortunately they were very small but I persevered in the hope that larger fish would turn up. I caught about 25 of these and a dozen Grayling, plus 1 acrobatic Trout. This may seem impressive but sadly the largest fish of the day would have failed to make 8ozs. As the water level fell by a few inches during the day, I had one more go in the faster water but only added one more small Grayling. Not too much wildlife about either but one Salmon leaped fully 4 feet clear of the water. I suspect that the larger fish remain in the main flow despite the extra speed, but presenting a bait to them was difficult. In hindsight I think a much heavier more visible float may have had better results. Something to try next time.

1 Trout, 12 Grayling, 25 Other

Had a great day out in stunning scenery - the river, woods, hills, and Autumn colours were amazing as was the backdrop of the castle ruin. Fished next to a good friend and enjoyed his company and netting skills...oh and caught some good barbel as well.

Thank you Wye and Usk

River high but starting to drop. Lots of debris/weed coming downstream, should be perfect in the next couple of days. Fishing quite hard and had no bites for a couple of hours and then 2 fish in 2 casts, then another 2 fish just before I packed up. The last barbel of the day being the best at 8lb 15oz on meat.

3 Barbel, 1 Chub

River looked in good condition with some colour following rain the day before. It dropped a foot whilst we were there but the fish would not respond! We managed only 2 chub and 1 barbel between us.

The only disappointing element is that this beat has very few usable pegs - we only found 2 that we could fish, the others looked rather dangerous!

1 Barbel, 2 Chub
