Usk Reservoir - Fishing in Wales

Usk Reservoir

One of the largest reservoirs in the Beacons, the Usk is named so because it dams the infant headwaters of the mighty River Usk.

The 280 acre Usk reservoir is located in dramatic, remote countryside surrounded by pine forest and moor in the far west of the beacons, the black Mountain range. The venue is regarded as one of the best reservoir trout fisheries in Wales, with the scenery to match.

The reservoir holds plenty of wild brown trout, stocked rainbow trout and also perch. It can be fished with the fly rod, or by spinning or worm fishing making it a great venue to try if you are a beginner or with the family.

The reservoir is run by Welsh Water, day tickets are available through the Fishing Passport.
