My best ever day of chub fishing on the Wye or any other river!! Started with a rush of Barbel, ranging from 4lbs to 9lbs, but things started to quieten down around lunchtime. Chub started to appear from around 3pm onwards, and had a mad couple of hours from 6pm to darkness. Largest was just under 6lbs, with nothing less than 4lbs. Chub were caught using 2 x 6ml elipse pellets glued to a hair on a size 12 hook. Mainline was my standard 12lbs red mist, with 8lbs hook lengths. Used marine halibut groundbait and micro pellets in a 2oz open ended feeder. Barbel were caught using similar methods, but with 8ml elipse pellets, size 10 hooks and 10lb hook lengths. River was quite low and dropped during the day, and the strong winds made fishing tricky at times. All fish caught off the beach opposite the monuments as both top and bottom sections were very slow moving, clear and low. Another great day fishing on the first Wye & Usk beat I ever fished and one I look forward to fishing again.

First time fishing this beat and as usual, finding the fish is key and today I managed to find them.

Fished pellets and feeder and had barbel between 5-8lb with one 4lb chub along the way.

As earlier feedback has noted, getting the boat out when the reservoir is so low is tricky to say the least. But the effort was very well rewarded: this a really lovely place to spend the day. Conditions were completely different from when I fished here earlier this year. There was good cloud cover with intermittent rain through the day. Much of the time there was a decent westerly breeze which made drifting easy, not that the little plastic tub here would be most anglers' first choice as a drifting boat! Still, it did the job adequately and I finished the day with fifteen fish. The best of these was a stunning specimen of around two pounds. All the others averaged twelve ounces to a pound and rose freely to my team of traditional wet flies (Black Pennel, Kate McLaren and Zulu). Nearly all of them came from the shallower water; either in the bay at the top of the lake or elsewhere in the margins.

This is certainly not a place for those who like things to be straightforward. But if you're prepared to put in a bit of effort to get there, wrestle the boat from the boathouse, and put up with the slightly quirky way in which it is equipped, this is one of the best day's fishing to be had. Still, if more people knew about that I probably wouldn't have been able to book it so easily and have the lake to myself. Let's keep it secret!

The last gate on the track down is in very poor condition - the gate post is rotten and had fallen over almost completely - and was very difficult to open and close.
