Crogen 1

Crogen 1

This is CADAC's uppermost Beat and consists of relatively slow to medium paced water which is deep in places. The Beat is fished mainly for Trout and Grayling however there are some excellent Salmon pools. The wading is relatively easy although care should be taken in places. There are some very large Grayling here and it fishes well all year round.This Beat is single bank fishing - left hand bank looking downstream.

Day Tickets are available for this Beat - for details click here
