This 1.2 mile stretch of the River Dore is widely regarded as some of the best of the finest fishing that this renowned Monnow tributary has to offer. The river here holds good stocks of wild brown trout and grayling, the latter enabling the fishery to remain open all year round.

The wading on this small stream is relatively easy over the gravel riverbed. There are, however, some very deep pools so chest waders are required to get the best out of the fishing. The fishery is a good mixture of open and overgrown sections so nothing bigger than 7.5 ft rod is required. Good mayfly hatches have been reported from the Dore in the past few years.

This is a private, secluded beat located in the scenic Golden Valley. It also has nearby self catering accommodation at Abbey Dore Court and the gardens to visit. Please see or 01981 240419.
