A Day of Brown Trout Fishing

The Glanusk Fishery has 3 beats:  Below the Bridge, Above the Bridge and the Island Beat (available on request for one rod).


Please return smaller trout, but please do keep those over 1lb in weight, fishermen are limited to keeping 2 for supper or lunch!

Picnic lunches are available on request to the Estate Office, and the Estate pub, the Nantyffin Cider Mill, welcomes all fishermen for all types of refreshment. This is situated on the north bank on the 'Below the Bridge' beat.

If it is dry and firm under foot, we are more than happy for you to drive up and down the river bank.  If, however, it is wet, please use the designated car parking areas that you will find on the Glanusk Fishery Beat Map (available from the office).

Access to the Island Beat is via the Gliffaes Gate next to the entry to the hotel on the north side of the river.

Ghillies and guides are available on request, as is tuition.
£35.00 for 1 person
Valid for 12 months

Brown Trout season 3rd March to 30th September. Fly fishing is the only permitted method between 3rd March and 31st May. Fishermen are requested to adhere to the Wye & Usk Foundation and AST methods for catch and release, and release fish as quickly and safely as possible. We would prefer you to use barbless hooks for salmon fishing but no Trebles are allowed on the Estate Fishery.
