Formerly known as Hay Castle and the lowest section of the Sheephouse Fishery, Wyecliff constitutes two thirds of a mile of left bank fishing directly above Hay-on-Wye. This beat offers some excellent trout fishing throughout its length, particularly on the upper part of the beat. There is also good opportunities for a salmon below the weir and anywhere along the sweeping left hand bend before the river approaches Hay bridge. The coarse fishing is also excellent with specimen barbel and chub present as well as some big pike. Wading is of mixed difficulty and studded soles are essential, especially for the upper, bedrock-dominated section. For the lower sections, the river flows over gravel and is much easier-going.

Please be aware that during school holidays, bank holidays and summer weekends especially, this fishery is in a busy part of the Wye and the number of other river users, canoes and kayaks in particular will be at its maximum. It is worth concentrating your fishing early morning and evening during these periods. Please contact us before booking should you have any queries about this.

Parking is close to the river towards the bottom section of the fishery. The owner does sell tickets directly so exclusivity is not guaranteed.

Block Booking is availble on this beat. You can book all the tickets available (sometimes at a discounted price). You can only fish up to the maximum daily number of people allowed for that type of fishing.

Nearby Accommodation
Camping and Bed and Breakfast accommodation can be found at Racquety Farm on the beat itself. Please see here for further information.
