The Lugg begins life in the heart of the Radnor Forest, flowing in an easterly direction to begin with. It is joined by the Arrow just south of Leominster (which also rises in the Radnor Forest), before continuing south to the confluence with the main Wye, a few miles downstream of Hereford. Both are predominantly wild brown trout rivers although the Lugg below Presteigne and the Arrow below Staunton-on-Arrow also provide some excellent grayling fishing opportunities.
The lowland character of the Lugg and Arrow mean that it is some of the easiest wading in the Wye catchment, mostly over a gravel and silt riverbed. These characteristics also mean that in most years, there is a strong mayfly hatch. It is also worth noting that due to the nature of their geology, they hold their flows in prolonged dry periods for much longer than other rivers. Conversely, they can take much longer to drop after a few weeks of wet weather!
