River wye - thebrobury beat

The point indicated on the map above is Bredwardine Bridge. The map below shows the Brobury Beat.


From Hereford, take the A438 West. Bredwardine bridge can be reached by turning left to Bredwardine. The Scar (see Fishery Information, below) can be reached by turning left from the A438 to Brobury. A steep track (not suitable for vehicles) leads down to the river through the woods. The end of the track is the downstream limit of the fishery.

Fishery Information

The upstream boundary is one short field downstream of Bredwardine bridge. Access to the fishery is through this private field. All water on the north back downstream to the Scar can be fished (the Scar is a long cliff and further access downstream becomes impossible).

There is roadside parking at Bredwardine bridge and at the Scar. This fishery can accommodate 6 rods per day. Note that, from June 16th, rods from another fishing club may fish this water for coarse fish. CFF  fishing, however, is for salmon only.

General Information

Salmon fishing is from March 3rd to October 17th with both spinning and fly fishing allowed until the end of August. Thereafter fly fishing only is permitted. All salmon caught must be returned.

CFF rods must wear their ID badges, carry the handbook and have a CFF member's sticker displayed in their vehicle. Failure to comply with this may lead to their being asked to leave the fishery.

Note that, by law, a salmon and sea trout licence is required to fish for salmon. Season, Daily and weekly licences are available here. (Be aware that restrictions regarding hook types may be implemented by the Environment agency during the season.)
