The fishing on the Wye is almost exclusively private but at Builth Wells the GPIAC has control of much of the fishing and visitors are welcome to enjoy fishing our water (click for Fishing Information for details and prices). The Club controls a mile and a half of single bank fishing and half a mile of double bank fishing (click for Maps). The river is stocked regularly with brown trout.
The river Wye is the fifth longest river in the UK and for some parts of its length, it forms a natural border between England and Wales. The river is important for nature conservation and recreation; so regarding the former please respect the Countryside Code and for the latter, please respect other users!
The source of the Wye is in the Welsh mountains at Plynlimon. It subsequently flows through or past several towns and villages, including Rhayader, Builth Wells, Hay-on-Wye, Hereford, Ross-on-Wye, Symonds Yat, Monmouth and Tintern, before finally meeting the Severn estuary just below Chepstow.
