Dolgau is 1 mile of mixed single (left) and double bank upper Wye fishing, a couple of miles south of Rhayader. The beat has several classic salmon pools as well as offering excellent trout fishing opportunities. However, this part of the Wye is especially renowned for its grayling and is a good bet for a specimen fish in the late summer and autumn. The best of the salmon fishing tends to be later in season.

Bank fishing is possible along most of the pools, all of which can be comfortably covered with a single or double handed rod. The fishery is well-maintained and has good access. With a combination of bedrock and gravel, care must be taken when wading as some of the pools are extremely deep. Studded soles are essential.

Upstream of Llanwrthwl Bridge the Wye's salmon season extends to the 25th October (downstream it ends as normal on 17th October). The top section of Dolgau is upstream of this bridge.
