The largest salmon caught by any method in Wales was taken by coracle net in 1782 from the River Usk. Two sources give its weight as 68 1/2lbs but it may have been even larger.
The UFA website has interesting articles and there is a discussion section for topical issues involving the Usk and its tributaries. The website also includes gauge heights, a picture gallery and other pertinent material regarding the Usk catchment area.
Enjoy browsing this website. If you have ideas about what else may be useful to have on this website that is relevant to UFA’s purpose we would be pleased to learn. Contact details are on ‘Get in Touch’.”
