Usk Reservoir: Fishing Information

The Usk reservoir is only a few miles downstream of the source of the River Usk below Fan Foel on the Black Mountain.

It has a reputation as one of the finest trout fisheries in Wales. The natural brown trout are supplemented by regular restocking of brown and rainbow trout.

It is a secluded quiet location where several sections of the reservoir bank are not far from the perimeter road. Fly fishing, spinning and worming are currently permitted. The upland location of the reservoir leaves it exposed to the wind which may cause some problems for fly fishermen.

On my walks around Usk Reservoir I often see the odd fisherman near the boating area or further long the banks before the bridge at the far end.
