Whitney Toll Bridge is approximately 700 yards of mixed single and double bank middle Wye coarse fishing a few miles downstream of Hay-on-Wye, either side of one of the Wye’s historical landmarks. This part of the river is excellent for chub with plenty of barbel also present. The beat also has potential for pike.

Despite its short length, this fishery has plenty of opportunities for two coarse anglers and has the added bonus of easy access, suitable for disabled anglers or those unwilling to negotiate the steeper, more overgrown banks of many of the river’s fisheries. For those wanting to float fish, wading from the right bank is possible in low water conditions over a gently sloping gravel riverbed.

Parking is on hard-standing within a few yards of the riverbank. Another considerable benefit is the facilities – there are toilets for anglers to use and refreshments are available if required (tea, coffee, bacon sandwiches etc. at additional cost). For more information visit the Whitney Toll Bridge website.

The 400 yard stretch of river downstream of the bridge on the right bank is shared with the Whitney Court fishery. This is on an alternate day basis but for the purpose of day tickets, both fisheries have agreed to share access on any day of the week. Please note therefore that anglers from Whitney Court could be in this section and that they have a right to fish there too.

Whitney Toll Bridge is also canoe landing and launch site and canoe traffic may be heavy during the peak times. Most paddlers are on the water between 10am and 4pm so fishing outside these periods is recommended during these periods.
