Just under 1 mile of double bank fishing in between Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth. Set in the shadow of Goodrich Castle, Middle Hill Court is one of the premier Wye salmon waters while also offering some first class coarse fishing. For salmon anglers the beat has several named pools including the Rope Pool and Ford Stream. The fishery is suited to just spinner. Barbel, chub and pike are common in this part of the Wye. The barbel run to double figures and the best pike in recent years weighed in at 28lbs. Other species include roach, dace, perch and even the occasional carp.

It is also a noted spring salmon fishery and includes the famous pools of The Rope, the tail of The Vanstone and The Parson Tree Stream. The Ford Stream provides a lovely location set under a backdrop of Goodrich Castle.

Beat clearance is usually done ahead of the start of the coarse season but the banks can become overgrown, particularly in the summer months.

The parking spot is right next to the river.

Half price evening tickets can be purchased between May ands Sept after 1pm on the day of fishing. Fishing is allowed from 5pm.

Canoe traffic can be heavy from 10am to 4pm at weekends during the warmer months, and especially during bank holidays.

The house reserves the right to fish any unbooked rods on the day
