The Society has rented two stretches of this beautiful river since the middle of the last century. The Upper Wye comprises approximately 1000 metres of Left bank at Hadnock and is accessed by crossing the main road bridge and turning upstream at Hadnock Road. The Lower Wye comprises 1100 metres of both left and right bank fishing downstream of the main road bridge and can be accesses from the Boys School playing fields car park (left bank) or via the tarmac track to the allotments alongside the River Monnow downstream from the Gatehouse Bridge.
When fishing, park in the small car park found near the top end of Hadnock Road just before Hadnock Cottages. The first accessible swim is approx. 60 paces downstream of the car park. Further swims can be found upstream by taking the cycle track upstream to the sheep pen entrance gate on the left opposite Hadnock Cottages. Our waters end at the Gwent Angling sign approx. 300 metres below the river bend.
Caution: The banks are steep and can be slippery when wet
Easy access to the upper section of the right bank is via the track to the allotments field. The right bank below the confluence with the River Monnow can be accessed by crossing the old railway bridge from the left bank and fishing either upstream toward the Monnow, or downstream to the confluence with the river Trothy.
The left bank offers a variety of swims and is accessed from the footpath alongside the playing fields. The old railway bridge is found from this path.
The confluence with the River Trothy is the lower limit of our waters.
Coarse Fishing Only in Season – 16th June to 14th March.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FISHING ON THE LOWER WYE (KNOWN LOCALLY AS “THE DUKE’S WATER”) IS ONLY PERMITTED OUTSIDE OF THE SALMON SEASON – 3rd March to 17th October).
