Yet again the wind put pay to my hopes of getting out on the boat so a last minute trip off the shore had to do, so i fished the bridge this afternoon, 2hrs before high and an hour after, rag, blacks and squid were the choices. Had a few knocks and managed to hook a small codling and a flatty, both returned safe n sound. Fished out of the v dub and managed to stay dry ish...... nice to get out and beat the blank. Heres hoping the wind will go away and normal business may resume!

Pill side pal, on the main road just past the Waterloo Hotel, nice easy fish, no snags and the added bonus, if its tipping down, you can sit in the car!

Born and breed on the Usk, fished it since I was a kid. ( But not regularly since late 70's when I was 25 )
The river has always had plenty of fish but it is far more rubbish filled nowadays. Back then, there were still sand boats up and down on a regular basis and PEOPLE didn't use the river as a dumping ground. Just take a look on LW at the amount of tyres, trollies and other stuff that's been thrown in.
All that said it's still a good place to beat the blank and have some fun with the mini's and the odd chance of a better fish, if you fish it right !!

If you go a little bit further down (by car sales ) there is a cracking bank . That's where i usually fish the usk from time to time.

Not really true but I know what you mean.... at least there aren't 30 boats out drift netting with 400m of trammel net. Like there was until 1992. When we stopped them. They not only took Salmon but every other species of fish as well.
