Just over a mile of single right bank middle Wye fishing situated between Hereford and Ross. For salmon anglers there are a number of streamy sections that are suitable for fly fishing for salmon and a number of holding pools that are more suited to spinning. The ‘Quarry’ is a deep holding pool notable for the capture of two fish in one day weighing 51lb and 44lb respectively. Wading is relatively easy over the mostly gravel riverbed. For coarse anglers there is a good head of barbel, chub and pike. The area around Carey Islands also holds brown trout.

The fishery has been lightly fished in recent years. A small syndicate also fishes the water so day tickets do not have exclusivity although there is more than enough water to go round.
