Historically well known for salmon fishing, the Middle Wye is arguably some of the river’s best fishing and offers salmon, trout and coarse fishing. The two beats offer numerous pools and sections of good quality fly water for salmon and trout.

The renowned Carrots Fishery is located about one mile downstream of Hereford at Hampton Bishop from approximately grid reference SO5465 3812 extending to about grid reference SO5560 3621. The fishery is owned by two moieties and the Upper and Lower beats are shared on alternative weeks.

Consisting of approximately 2.43 miles of mostly double and some single bank fishing, this section of the Wye offers some good deep salmon pools and a mix of streamy and slow moving water for the target species.

The fishing consists of 2/12ths of a syndicate that owns fifty per cent of the fishing rights. This interest is apportioned as two rods on Mondays with two rods on Sundays on a rota arrangement between syndicate members.

The fishery of the Upper and Lower beat are shared between the two moieties who own the fishery and are fished by members on alternate weeks. The Upper Beat consists of approximately 1,670 metres of double bank fishing and 91 metres of single bank fishing. The Lower Beat consists of approximately 1,403 metres of double bank fishing and 739 metres of single bank fishing.

Access to the fishery is from The Bunch of Carrots pub where there is car parking and vehicular access to the fishery. There is a metalled drive along the side of the stank to a further car parking area and the fishing hut and continuing vehicular and pedestrian access to the remainder of the fishery.
