The Fishing Passport: River Cilieni (Upper) - Fishing in Wales

The Fishing Passport: River Cilieni (Upper)

The Cilieni is a remote river Usk tributary that joins the main stem just below Sennybridge. The upper beat extends for a mile upstream from the village of Pentre Bach and is true wild stream fishing. It is ideal for upstream trout fishing with very light tackle. The river narrows and meanders as you progress upriver, providing some fantastic pools to explore in stunning surroundings.

This beat is right bank fishing only and is fishable in thigh waders although some of the pools are deep.

There is also the option of exploring the smaller Eithrim stream on the other side of Pentre Bach village. Please pay close attention to the map and only fish where the left river bank is outlined in red.
