Despite confirmation by the Westminster Government that fishing constitutes exercise, restrictions on movement remain in place in England with travel only permitted with your locality (village, town or area of city). This means that for the vast majority, fishing Passport beats on either side of the border is not possible under Westminster or Welsh Government rules and we have therefore decided to remain closed for the time being.

Due to the current level of uncertainty on when restrictions will be eased, we will not be taking advance bookings for later in the year until an end date for the lockdowns has been given by the respective Governments. Once this date has been confirmed, we will reopen the fisheries for bookings. 

Please note that while Passport fisheries are closed they cannot be viewed on the Fishing Passport website, nor can their catch returns.

Anyone who has booked fishing during the current lockdowns will be offered a refund. Please contact the office on 01874 712 074 to arrange this or if you have any other queries.

Other Wye & Usk Foundation departments are continuing to work through the lockdown with the appropriate COVID-19 measures. However, the office is lightly staffed so any enquiries may take a little longer than normal for us to deal with.

Thank you,

The Fishing Passport team.
