Flowing through the grounds of the Glanusk Estate is the famous River Usk, renowned for it's Brown Trout and, in recent times, Wales's premier Salmon River. Glanusk offers exclusive fishing breaks and has a resident ghillie, Stuart Jarvis, who is on hand should you require guidance or instruction.

Derived from the Welsh name "Afon Wysg" (literally meaning "river abounding in fish"), the Usk starts in Mid Wales, initially flowing in an easterly direction to the north of the picturesque Brecon Beacons, before taking a more southerly course to join the Bristol Channel at Newport.

The Estate has 5 miles of private river, one and a half miles of double bank Usk fishing, offering the visiting angler wonderful opportunities for both Brown Trout and Atlantic Salmon. Access to water is good with well maintained banks and some croys from which to fish.
