The Dean & Chapter is one of the historic salmon catches of the middle Wye and is set in amongst some of the finest of Herefordshire’s countryside. This beat is named after the famous pool, which is at the upstream end of this one mile+ section of double bank fishing. The beat also has several other named salmon pools, along with croys and walkways. Despite being largely private and lightly fished in the past few years, it has been well maintained and has excellent access.
Parking is next to the river and in dry conditions, there is vehicle access along almost the entire fishery (4x4 required for wet conditions from the parking area).
For coarse anglers the Dean & Chapter offers huge potential, being in a part of the Wye particularly well known for its barbel, chub and pike fishing. There is a wide variety of water from deeper, slower sections to shallower, faster water pushing through the large ranunculus beds.
Although the fishery has the rights to both banks, please note that all the access is from the left bank only.
