Clive Branson's
Fishing Guide Wales

Monmouthshire

'Croeso i Gymru'. Welcome to Wales. England greets Wales in Monmouthshire and a mixture of Welsh and English influences are evident in the historic towns of Chepstow, Monmouth, Abergavenny, Usk and Caldicot. Monmouthshire attracts walkers from all over Europe to its beautiful scenery and its cultural treasures include Tintern Abbey and the time and battle-ravaged castles of the Welsh borderlands. The Wye and Usk are two of Wales' most famous salmon and Trout Rivers, yet Monmouthshire is full of rivers, lakes and mountain streams where the fishing is excellent. The River Monnow, famous for its distinctive bridge in the historical town of Monmouth, can be fished as both Coarse and Game at various beats in and around Monmouth, as can the Wye and Usk on their respective beats.

and the Borders


 

By popular demand from visiting anglers I have been asked on many occasions
“Where best to go fishing including best facilities such as refreshments, toilets, disable access etc”
Therefore I have introduced for each venue within the guide my personal
1-5 star rating *****.
Including my personal views, helping anglers decide where best to experience
this great sport of ours.
I recommend that you phone first and check details before setting out. You will need a valid Environment Agency rod licence to fish at any venue listed

RIVER USK
The River Usk (Welsh: Afon Wysg) rises on the northern slopes of the Black Mountain of mid-Wales, in the easternmost part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Initially it flows north into Usk Reservoir, then east by Sennybridge to Brecon before turning southeast to flow by Talybont-on-Usk, Crickhowell and Abergavenny after which it takes a more southerly course. Beyond the eponymous town of Usk it passes the Roman legionary fortress of Caerleon to flow through the heart of the city of Newport and into the Severn estuary at Uskmouth beyond Newport, at Newport Wetlands.
