View the Salmon Catches

Last Update: 9:35 am, 17th February 2021

We cannot stress enough the importance of making quick and accurate returns of salmon catches, even if nothing has been caught. Recording catch data is one (perhaps the best, certainly the most cost effective) way of determining the success of our river restoration works. Although affected by short term variations in weather and water conditions, the longer term data set will build an accurate picture of our salmon runs. Catch returns can be made quickly via our online form for both Passport and non-Passport waters. Most of our reporting is from the Wye. Where a salmon has come from another river we will state accordingly.

Despite confirmation by the Westminster Government that fishing constitutes exercise, restrictions on movement remain in place with travel only permitted with your locality (village, town or area of city). This means that for the vast majority, fishing Passport beats is not possible within the rules and we have therefore decided to remain closed for the time being.

Please note that while Passport fisheries are closed they cannot be viewed on the Fishing Passport website, nor can their catch returns.

Once a date for the end of lockdown has been confirmed by Welsh and Westminster Governments, we will reopen the fisheies for bookings. For the latest information, please see the Wye & Usk Foundation's "COVID-19 Latest" webpage.

The new lockdown in England proscribes any 'leisure or recreation.' This, along with the Tier 4 lockdown in Wales means that all Fishing Passport beats are closed until further notice. Advance bookings will not restart until confirmation of the easing of lockdown restirctions has been confirmed by the Westminster and Welsh Governments. For the latest information, please see the Wye & Usk Foundation's "COVID-19 Latest" webpage.
