Salmon Pool Beat – Fast broken water leading into good salmon lies followed by deep (too deep even for wading in the middle) holding water especially for big brownies. Finally it ends with a swift smooth run leaving our water.
Fast falling and many large boulders providing exciting runs over the entire length for brown trout. A wading stick and chest waders highly recommended here.
Looking upstream on the Middle beat – low summer flows
More fast flowing water and interesting wider flatter section with more boulders forming testing runs and lies. Two other high water salmon lies.
3/4 mile both banks split in half ; top half smooth and deep water holding many good sized trout. The lower section is more accessible with a number of good salmon lies and is also holds the occasional sea trout.
Llandetty at low flow in August
We allocate beats on a daily basis but if you have a preference please tell us when you book your fishing. If we are very busy we may have to put two rods on each beat. If this is not enough fishing for you can fish many miles of both the River Wye and Usk catchments with the Wye and Usk Passport.
This web cam is just downstream of us on the Glanusk Estate and gives an accurate picture of the current height of the river.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
