Fishing on the River Wye and Derwent

Fishing on the River Wye and Derwent

The River Wye and Derwent both offer excellent fishing for brown trout and the ocasional rainbow trout.

We find fishermen from all over the world coming to sample these nearby rivers, and believe they offer exceptional beats to explore.

The River Wye

Voted as the nation's favourite river in 2010, the River Wye flows approximately 152 miles south-easterly going through Builth Wells, Hay-on-Wye, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye and Monmouth, before joining the Severn Estuary at Chepstow. The river is listed as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) under the EU Habitats Directive, and has everything an angler could want.

Salmon, trout, grayling, barbel, chub, big pike feature in an array of species that can be caught in this river, and the breath-taking scenery is second to none.

To fish the River Wye, we recommend day tickets and membership from Cressbrook & Litton Flyfishers Club Ltd. and you can find out more about them by clicking here.

The River Derwent

The River Derwent stretches 66 miles through rural Derbyshire. Once providing power to the industrial cotton factories during the revolution, today it supplies water to neighbouring cities. Trout and grayling are the predominant species but barbel and chub can be found in most stretches for anglers prepared to spend some time getting to know the river. Dace, roach and quality perch are also to be found as are the occasional carp especially in the Matlock Bath beats.
