The Fishing Passport: River Wye (Ty Mawr) - Fishing in Wales

The Fishing Passport: River Wye (Ty Mawr)

The furthest upstream of the Wye fishing, a couple of miles upstream of Llangurig, this 1 mile+ beat flows over a mostly gravel riverbed and is relatively easy wading.

The beat holds trout and grayling of a decent average size but with little tree cover, the river here has more of a highland character and offers sparse cover when the wind is up.

In low dry conditions the water is crystal clear and stealth is required when approaching the pools. This is often the first part of the catchment to become fishable after flood. Wild brown trout are the main quarry although grayling are present too.

Ideally fished with 7½-8½, 2-5wt rod.
