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.

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.
Gliffaes will be closed until 3rd March.
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 the spring.
James & Suie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
