1 mile of right bank fishing on the lower reaches of the Monnow, a few miles upstream of Monmouth. This wonderfully secluded stretch is for the most part a good mixture of riffles and pools, providing some excellent fly fishing for the trout that give this river its reputation as one of the area's finest. The mayfly hatches can be spectacular, so dry fly fishing is excellent during late spring and early summer. This stretch of the Monnow is also host to a variety of coarse species, including chub and grayling. The best of the coarse fishing is towards the downstream end of the fishery where the river is slower and deeper.

The banks are quite overgrown in places so access to the river can be difficult, especially in the summer months. If wading, the river has a mostly gravel bed so is relatively easy to negotiate. There are, however, deep sections where anglers will need to get back out onto the banks. Chest waders with studded soles are advisable.
