The Wye & Usk Foundation (WUF) is a registered charity concerned with ecology and, more specifically, restoring the habitat, water quality and fisheries of the rivers Wye and Usk. The Foundation is more than just a lobbying organisation: through a series of partnership projects, we raise significant sums of money to remedy problems such as habitat degradation, poor water quality and diffuse pollution, barriers to fish migration and over-exploitation of our fisheries. The Foundation is the largest rivers’ trust in England and Wales in terms of output.

The Fishing Passport enables anglers to access some of the best salmon, sea trout, trout, grayling and coarse fishing Wales and The Marches have to offer.

Working to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development.

Looking after our environment for people and nature

We're the government’s adviser for the natural environment in England, helping to protect England’s nature and landscapes for people to enjoy and for the services they provide.

The Monnow Rivers Association was formed to bring together those who had an interest in protecting the river Monnow and restoring it to its former status as “one of the best trouting rivers on the border or beyond it” (A.G.Bradley – In the March & Borderland of Wales).

The Lugg and Arrow Fisheries Association (LAFA) was formed in 2003 to take all possible action to restore the former excellence of these rivers following years of declining fish stocks and other aquatic life. It is a broad-based organisation made up of riparian owners, anglers and anyone else with an interest in the two rivers.

What’s the role of Afonydd Cymru in the fight for our rivers?


To press Welsh Government to bring the deplorable levels of farm pollution and other land use issues within safe levels at the very earliest opportunity. To support the six welsh trusts and assist with development and funding to enable restoration and maintenance of our rivers fisheries and freshwater ecosystems. To keep relevant information flowing.
