Clive Branson's
Fishing Guide Wales

Powys
In Powys you will find rolling countryside from the wide, open spaces of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the south to the wild beauty of the Berwyn Mountains in the north. Between those two mountain ranges there's much to discover - the rolling, timeless landscapes along the border, the many rivers and mountain streams, the character full country towns and villages, and a rich history which embraces everything from mysterious prehistoric monuments to Victorian spa towns. Three of Wales' classic rivers - the Wye, Severn and Usk - originate in Powys. The sources of the first two are only a few miles apart, hidden amongst the trees of the Hafren Forest high in the Cambrian Mountains to the west. From here, the Wye flows southwards through Rhayader, Builth Wells and Hay in a lovely valley, wild at first but maturing into rich farmland along the way. The majestic Severn flows through Llanidloes, Newtown and Welshpool, its wide, verdant vale a natural - and most inviting - gateway into Wales. The Usk begins life in the moors of the western Black Mountain, then creates a major landscape feature in the National Park by carving a spectacular valley through the mountains on its course from Brecon to Crickhowell. The many lakes are the major feature of Powys, famously the Elan Valley west of Rhayader, where a string of reservoirs blend harmoniously with their rugged surroundings in the mountains. These lakes have been attracting visitors since they were created at the turn of the century to supply water to Birmingham in England. The lakes form a centrepiece for a vast wildlife reserve, renowned for the beauty of its mountains, moors, oakwoods and prolific birdlife. The excellent Elan Valley Visitor Centre offers a fascinating introduction. Powys is not all dramatic landscape; the town of Brecon has an internationally renowned jazz festival and the book-town of Hay on Wye is also internationally renowned for its literature festival.

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

However, since the Lake Vyrnwy dam was built in the 1880s, the river has flowed directly from the base of the dam. The river runs for 39.7 miles (63.9 km), and the last 8 miles (12.9 km) form part of the Welsh/English border between Powys and Shropshire. It eventually joins the River Severn near the village of Melverley.Call hotel for more info. Close season applies.

Venue; RIVER USK

The River Usk (Welsh: Afon Wysg) rises of mid- in the Carmarthen Fans mountains or Fan BrycheiniogWales, in the westernmost part of the Brecon Beacons National Park then flows south-east through Brecon , Crickhowell, Abergavenny and the eponymous town of Usk past the Roman legionary fortress of Caerleon, through the heart of Newport city and into the Severn estuary at Uskmouth beyond Newport. The Usk has long been a noted salmon and trout fishing river with a national and international reputation. Salmon of over 30 lb (14 kg) can still be caught. The river has the highest estimated salmon egg deposition of any river south of Cumbria and the Scottish rivers, and exceeded its spawning target. The river has recently been rated as the best fly fishing water in Wales for salmon and inside the UK Top Ten. The Normal Tidal Limit (NTL) of the river is the bridge at Newbridge-on-Usk, some five miles north of Newport.
