This beat consists of approximately 2.5kms of double bank Usk salmon and trout fishing and is located just upstream of Crickhowell. The Glanusk Estate Fishery offers some classic Usk fishing on a day ticket basis. The beat is characterised by a sequence of long salmon holding pools that also provide great dry fly fishing for trout in the in-flowing runs and the long tails.

Access to the river here is excellent. During dry conditions it is possible to drive along the entire length of the beat. Many of the salmon pools are fishable from the bank and for the most part, the wading is relatively easy-going. If you are wading, however, studded or stud/felt soles are highly recommended.

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

No day tickets will be available from 25th July 2023 to 5th Sept 2023.
